    Setting up jquery via dreamweaver

    Esteemed colleagues,
    I would like to start playing with jquery; I'm trying to run it by setting up a simple test program via dreamweaver. I keep getting two error indicators which must be related.

    My simple test program is:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-xhtml1-20020801/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml' xml:lang='en'>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv='content-type' content='text/html; charset=utf-8' />
    <meta http-equiv='content-language' content='en-us' />
    <title>Link</title>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='jquery-1.3.2.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='javascript/example1_1.js'></script>
    <link href='example1_1.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>
    </head>
    <body>
    <p>
    jQuery is not loaded.
    </p>
    </body>
    </html>

    The first error says there is a syntax error in the statement:
    <link href='example1_1.css' rel=....etc.

    When I close the page in the browser, the dreamweaver box appears in saying

    background file activity - jquery
    file activity incomplete. 1 file or folder were not complete


    I've doubled checked all the path specifications etc.
    Anybody have any comments?

    Thanks in advance
    Sig

    Does the other test jquery script look like this:
    Code:
    	$(function (){
               /* test code */
    	});
    I did find a validation error at the top of your document try using this instead:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <link href="example1_1.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" />

    No,
    it looks like this:
    if ($)
    $(document).ready(
    function() {
    $('p').addClass('tmpFrameworkLoaded');
    $('p').text('jQuery successfully loaded and running');
    }
    );
    )

    I'm trying to follow along with Richard York's book by using his code.

    Back to you, infinityspiral (great handle)

    The code I gave is actually shorthand for the one in your book. Glad you fixed it
