JavaScript prmpt Window wouldn't hold on IE, Window 7

This follow code contain a javascript prompt example. It workd on local machine, but when it is
uploaded to a website, the Promt window does not display. The IE browser shows on the message bar "this site contains a script and will take data would you allow it  .. ". When I click temperal allow the script prompt, still the prompt window didn't show up. In fact the script is already passed that point, show the next line with the data (name = null).  It is at this site:

Interesting. I was using Opera 11 browser actually (It's my default) and I didn't even set up a default site for that page. I can post a acreen shot later maybe. Doesn't that point to document/site relative links as a possible cause? Are you sure that page is in the root folder on the site perhaps.
There is also a superfluous body tag in that code I noticed just now.
I'll check it again...
