Hey all,
 Simple JS.  I can't seem to get into the OAS_RICH function.  I can hit the AD function and the conditional but it doesn't call the OAS_NORMAL function.... am I doing something wrong ?


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--
version = 11;
function OAS_NORMAL(pos) {
  document.write('test normal');
}
function OAS_RICH(pos) {
    document.write('test rich');
 }
//-->
</SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--
function AD(pos) {
   
  if (version >= 11)
    OAS_RICH(pos);
  else
    OAS_NORMAL(pos);
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>

I replace your code w/ alerts works in IE6 and FF...


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--
version = 11;
function OAS_NORMAL(pos) {
  alert('test normal');
}
function OAS_RICH(pos) {
    alert('test rich');
 }
//-->
</SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--
function AD(pos) {
   
  if (version >= 11)
    OAS_RICH(pos);
  else
    OAS_NORMAL(pos);
}

AD('test');
//-->

</SCRIPT>

darn, I did the same thing and I couldn't get into the function.  

 Aparently something else in my code is preventing it from being called.

I would start small with the working code and slowly add stuff to it....

The answer is 'YES' you are doing something wrong - post more code

here's a test page that shows all of your functions firing:
<html>
<head>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--
version = 11;
function OAS_NORMAL(pos) {
  document.write('test normal');
}
function OAS_RICH(pos) {
    document.write('test rich');
 }
//-->
</SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--
function AD(pos) {
   
  if (version >= 11)
    OAS_RICH(pos);
  else
    OAS_NORMAL(pos);
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>
</head>
<body>
<form name="test">
      <input type="button" value="OAS_NORMAL" onclick="OAS_NORMAL(1);"/><br/>
      <input type="button" value="OAS_RICH" onclick="OAS_RICH(1);"/><br/>
      <input type="button" value="AD" onclick="AD(1);"/>
</form>
</body>
</html>

The OAS_NORMAL() is called only for version value 10 and lower.
And you have to be aware that document.write() CAN destroy the previous scripts on the page.
To see the dynamic content of the page use devic's PageSpy: http:/M_1344026.html

The issue here is the use of Language attribute in Javascript. It should be

 script type='text\Javascript'
