[SOLVED] JQuery W3C invalid - Span tags inside of Javascript


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm looking to use a JQuery plugin by placing the code below at the bottom of my xhtml, inside my body. I notice if I try to validate the page in w3c, (it's xhtml) the page gives me this error:


"document type does not allow element "span" here"


Is there a way around this to get the page to validate? Am I doing something wrong here?



<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
	prev: '<span>Prev</span>',
	next: '<span>Prev</span>'

The validation error is probably because of the tags in the script:

  prev: '<span>Prev</span>'


I'd imagine you'd get the same thing from

  prev: $("<span/>").html("Prev")


You may want to try createElement, just to get the tag characters out of the way:



      prev: (function(e){ e.innerHTML="Prev"; return e;})(document.createElement('span'))

      next: (function(e){ e.innerHTML="Next"; return e;})(document.createElement('span'))
