I want to display the Header information in an HTML page I have.  I need to see if the Header information displays error numbers, such as 500 errors.

How can I do this in JavaScript?

Cheers,
Sue

Is this what you mean?

<html>
<head>
<title>New Page 1</title>
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 3.0">
</head>
<script>
   document.write(this.GENERATOR.content)
   document.write(document.title)
</script>
<body>
</body>
</html>

These suggestions do not answer my question.

I need a javascript that i can put in my custom error page that will show the HTTP header information.  This the system header information that is sent to the page.

Cheers,
Sue
