script src=

I decided long ago, based on something I read, that <script src= > cannot be used with Netscape 3.x (NS3).
But today I noticed that MS is using it succesfully on its site. When my own html says src=http:/www.microsoft... it does indeed work.
But if I copy the script (*x.js) to my web and try to use that with src=..., NS3 asks me if I want to save the script file.
What gives? I would love to pull out my scripts to separate files, since I use them from many pages.

The
<script src=xxx.js>
</script>

tags need to specify xxx.js as being the path where the javascript is to be loaded from.  However, this is assumed to be relative to the path where the html loaded from.  So typically you need the script file and the html in the same place.    For example:

The html file:
<html>
<body>
<script src=test.js>
</script>
</body>

and the file test.js:
alert('This will pop up');

would cause the alert box to appear if these were both placed in the same directory on your server.

I placed these two files at:
http://www.REsource.nu/bugs/test.htm
and
http://www.REsource.nu/test.js
for your interest

I did give the path. The problem seems to be, that for some reason, NS3 and my test web server(IIS3) don't match. On my production server, and your test page, I have an intermittent problem: NS doesn't execute the script but instead displays nothing from the loading page, but the *script source* instead! Other browsers are just fine!
