    Script Not Working in FF OR Opera

    JavaScript:
    Code:
    function goBold()
          {
          
            var goBoldButton = prompt("Please enter the text that is to be bold", "");
            
            var boldText = "" + goBoldButton + "";
            
            document.newsForm.newsBody.value += boldText;
            
          }
          
          function goItalic()
          {
          
            var goItalicButton = prompt("Please enter the text that is to be italic", "");
            
            var italicText = "" + goItalicButton + "";
            
            document.newsForm.newsBody.value += italicText;
            
          }
          
          function errorCheck()
          {
          
            var body = document.newsForm.newsBody.value;
            var title = document.newsForm.newsTitle.value;
            
            // check to see that the information is valid
            
            if (body == "" || body == "NULL")
            {
            
              alert("Please enter some news!");
              return false;
              
            }
            
            else if (title == "" || title == "NULL")
            {
            
              alert("Please enter a news title!");
              return false;
              
            }
            
            else
            {
            
              return true;
              
            }

            </form>
            
          </div>
          
        </body>
        
      </html>
    I swear JavaScript hates me. Can someone explain to me why this isn't working? Nothing happens when I click the BOLD or ITALIC buttons, and it doesn't work right when I submit the form with the wrong data, either

    P.S. The reason it's showing empty quotes in the bold and italic functions is because BBCode goes there.

    If you pasted javascript exactly, then the problem is that you forgot to close the "}" for errorCheck function.
