Description Peter Elbertse 2004-11-22 10:56:04 UTC
When a javascript string is built up with the "+"-sign, the HTML validation 
will not be done upon the complete string, but on the substrings. For this 

myHint.innerHTML     = "<center><small>" + text + "</small></center>" ;

Will result in the following errors like:

Line 15, column 68: end tag for element "CENTER" which is not open

... = "<center><small>" + text + "</small></center>" ;
