It appears the <script> tag must have a closing tag </script>.

So this <SCRIPT type="text/javascript" src="javascriptPrototype.js" />

Should be this <SCRIPT type="text/javascript"

Subject: [Proto-Scripty] Trouble getting started with Prototype

Hey, I'm new to Javascript but not to programming.  I decided to use
prototype because of the helpful functions it appeared to offer.

Here is what I have in a nutshell:

<SCRIPT type="text/javascript" src="javascriptPrototype.js" />
<SCRIPT type="text/javascript">
        function editInfo()
                                // A Bunch of other stuff goes here
after the fact.

The Prototype functions are in javascriptPrototype.js.  I am trying to
remove (or delete the contents of if someone has a better idea) the
div element with id="box".  I get an error everytime in IE 7.

Anyone have any tips or suggestions?
