    Novice debugging issue

    Im brand new to javascript and as a seemingly easy first mini-project, Im trying to write a script that will turn an array into a string and present it in an alert box. Here is the script as it exists:

    var termDef = new Array();

    termDef [0] = <acronym><acronymTerm>;
    termDef [1] = term;
    termDef [2] = </acronymTerm><acronymDefinition>;
    termDef [3] = def;
    termDef [4] = </acronymDefinition></acronym>;

    var termDef = termDef.toString("");


    However, this script returns NOTHING and I cant seem to figure out where the bug is, or what Im doing wrong. Any help /guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Then use a text editor not a word processor, which won't introduce illegal characters like “”, which should be ".

    Also learn to use the error console, which would have alerted you to the problem.
    Where used, return should be executed unconditionally and always as the last statement in the function.

    That's my signature, it's not part of the damn post!
