Default Javascript alert error

I am relatively new to Javascript, and I am pulling my hair out (lolololoooooo....). I have a situation that I am testing to make sure that a function is operating when an onLoad is being used. The code wasn't happening, so I removed the code and put an alert in to the function to be sure tthe function was happening. I do not see the alert on my system, although my Colleagues do see this alert when they look at my app. Could someone please explain why this would happen. The code is very straight forward, but I have attached.
Thanks
Ed

function checkPage()
{
alert('in check page');
}

</script>




</HEAD>

<BODY onLoad="checkPage()">

Hi Ed,

Have you checked that you browser supports & has javascript enabled?

HTH,

Chris

How do I check for that ? My Javascripts are running, but the "alert" doesn't seem to be popping up. I have code that is conditional for what my web page displays, and that functions. But when I put an alert at the top of that function (the one I know is executing the display control) the alert doesn't pop up. does that make sense ?
Thanks
Ed

OK, write this *exact* page and run it:

<html>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
alert("it works");
</script>
</html>

Does this work?

If not, view the source of the page. It may be a caching issue. If the source is not exactly what you wrote, refresh the page. If that doesn't work, try closing the browser and starting over.

Internet Explorer, if that is what you are using, has some really nasty caching problems, sometimes....

Hope this message helps,

Snib

Thanks for the help everyone, it seems there was a search engine tool bar on my IE that was causing the problems. When I removed the tool bar the alerts started coming up
Thanks again

Yeah... I would get rid of any installed toolbar, were I you. 99% of them are spyware, malware, adware, etc.

Glad your problem is solved.
