Hi Andy,

I got it... for whatever reason.. perhaps because my script was
evaluating the referring URL, I'm not sure.. but, I could not <script
src=...> my javascript. I had to include it in the page within
<![CDATA[]]> tags... once I did that, it worked. Weird since all my
other .js scripts are being called via the <script src=> method.

Anyhow, thanks for your help.

replace this:

<SCRIPT src="(path)/link-parser.js" type=text/javascript> </SCRIPT>

with this:
<SCRIPT src="(url)/link-parser.js" type=text/javascript><!--

I had the same problem (Tomcat 5.5.12) which seems to resolve itself if
the SCRIPT tag has a nonempty body. I have no idea why this is.

I use a comment as the body to prevent problems with upgrades later.
