    Seriously, how hard is it to get the original topic, and find from that the person who actually posted the topic?

    PS: Alex, you're an awesome beta tester for this forum software, given your readership is a bunch of critics [;-)]



  • Holy crap, I'm embarassed to say I actually googled BLOCKED SCRIPT, thinking it was a PHP or Perl thing I hadn't heard of.



    Looks like I'm in the right place.

    "BLOCKED SCRIPT" is an German script language, like JavaScript, but
    uppercase letters only ("Blockbuchstabe" means "uppercase letter" in
    German)

    Since the given example was incorrectly written in mixed case (mostly
    lowercase), it doesn't work. Written correctly, it would have opened an
    alert box, something that obviously doesn't happen except in some MS
    browsers that try to interpret malformed BLOCKED SCRIPT anyway.
