A palindrome is a number or a text phrase that reads the same backward and forward. For example, each of the following five-digit integers is a palindrome: 12321, 55555, 45554 and 11611. Write a script that reads in a five-digit integer and determines whether it is a palindrome. If the number is not five digits long or is not a valid number, output XHTML text that displays an alert dialog indicating the problem to the user. Allow the user to enter a new value after dismissing the alert dialog. Continue the whole process until the user enters “stop”.
Hint:
Given a number say 12345:
One solution to find out values for all the digits
var startNumber = parseInt (12345/10000) will give you the first digit 1
var endNumber =12345%10  will give you last digit 5

After the comparison – if they are the same and you need to continue

var remaingNumber = parseInt ((12345 – startNumber *10000)/10 ) will give you the remaining number needs to be processed 234
