sometimes there's no need to execute the code to see what the error is... so if you just could tell!

Here are a few fixes to try in your code.

Change the tag that says <server> to <script language="javascript">

Replace your form's code with this code.
<form onSubmit="makenew(searchText,'Webcrawler','Webscrewed',info)">
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="searchText" SIZE="30">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Search">
</form>

Beyond this you need to tell us what you are wanting to do and what is going wrong.

ok....  I think that I assumed that the person answering would know what I was trying to do... ok this is a server side javascript program that saves incoming html, replaces certain words and then lets the person load the edited html.. this is the true question...

I would suggest reposting your question and include a description of the problem (what it's supposed to do and what it's not doing), any errors you are getting, the code, and state that this is a server-side problem.  You also need to watch your email and respond to answers and comments as they are made.  I am not sure if you graded this question or not (I don't believe you did) and after 20 days the question was automatically graded.  I have no control over this.

99% of all JavaScript questions relate to the client-side and unless the description specifically says that the question relates to server-side most people (including myself) believe the question relates to client-side.  Many of the options and tags that server-side has are not known on the client-side (for obvious reasons).

I am sorry that your question was not resolved and I wish I could help more, but I don't know server-side JavaScrip.  I am sure that if you re-post the information I mentioned above, you will get an answer that will work for you.
