How to visualize HTML-code in a javascript-window ??

Hi,

please help! How am I able to visualize (not to execute!!!) html-code in a javascript-popup-window?

e.g. document.write("<hallo>"); should display 'Hallo' in the created js-window.

I can't manage this problem ...

Thanks, Felicitas

First the "document.write" has to be placed in the page that is being opened in the popup window.  Try this:

file01 pops up the new window:

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
var newWin
function newWindow(theURL,windowName,features) {
     newWin = window.open(theURL,windowName,features);
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="javascript:newWindow('file02.html','newWindow','toolbars=yes,scrollbars=yes,width=600,height=400')">Open a New Window</a>
</center>
</body>
</html>

file02 writes hallo using document.write:

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
<table width="100%">
     <tr>
          <td><script>document.write("Hallo");</script></td>
     </tr>
</table>
</center>
</body>
</html>


Hope this is what you were expecting,

&lt;HTML&gt; <br>
&lt;HEAD&gt; <br>
&lt;TITLE&gt; <br>
This is the page title.. <br>
&lt;/TITLE&gt; <br>
&lt;/HEAD&gt; <br>
&lt;BODY&gt; <br>

Place the Body text here... <br>

&lt;/BODY&gt; <br>
&lt;/HTML&gt; <br>

</body>
</html>

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

If you have a lot of code to display this way, there is an easier
way then &lt; and &gt;

You can use the depreciated tag <xmp>

Any HTML between <xmp> and </xmp> will be treated as a literal by the
browser.

so document.write('<xmp><table><tr><td width="100"> hello </td></tr></table></xmp>');
would display as <table><tr><td width="100"> hello </td></tr></table>

In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear to me that it has value as a PAQ. Silence = you don't care
