I have a page that first checks to see if the message property contains a value, if it does then display it.  The problem is that when I publish the site to the web server, the page displays an error; see attached.  If I comment out the alert(msg) the page displays without an error.  If I uncomment, it errors out.  Not knowing enough about this I'm not sure what to consider as the problem.  i suspect it's iis related or permissions, but not sure.

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {

        var msg = '@ViewData["Message"]';
            if (msg != "")
            alert(msg);  //problem line
