Default Problems with downloaded code

I downloaded the code for this book. But none of the code for chapter 12: Working With JavaScript actually works. None of the effects. Does anyone kn ow why the examples don't work?

Angry Difficult down load code.

If this book is for beginning, why it is so difficult to down load the code. It was supposed to be according to the title, isitn't? Can some body tell me an easy way. Thank you. Carl47

Carl47: There's a link to the code download at the top of this page. Sorry if you missed it. I'll repeat it here though:
Download the code for Beginning HTML, XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript
Hope this helps

Default No download

That download is Sh.... quite a frustration. I never got it. For $35 book price could be something better. I will never buy another book from this publisher.

Default Carl47 is right

The code for Chapter 12 is a disaster. Much of it doesn't work, Exercise 1 at the very end in particular. Of course, there is no download code for this exercise. The book code simply doesn't work.

I sent you an e-mail once before about the problems with the book code and the download code and got no response. I doubt I'll get one this time either.

Are you trying to open the JavaScript examples locally on a PC?
There can sometimes be problems getting JS to run locally (especially in IE), see the following links:

I tested the book code on Google Chrome, IE9 and Firefox. The validation codes for all except the last (the validation for text not exceeding 20 words) work. The validation code for the last doesn't work in any of the three browsers.

The DL code for the book doesn't have any code for exercise 1, Chapter 12, although there is a link under index in Chapter 12.

It looks like there might be an error in the answers to the exercise. The split() should say something more like this:

var tieBreakerWords = tieBreaker.split(" ");

This would split the words entered into an array every time there is a space, then the tieBreakerWords.length looks for the number of items in the array (if it is more than 20 then the error is shown).
