Re: write() and <

Hey Gordon,

Check out my example at

I use the same methodology that I posted earlier.

function WriteToOutputWindow() {
 mywin.document.write('&lt; TABLE &gt;')

and don't ever have to call document.open() bc I call window.open.
The trouble with my output lies somewhere in the &lt; code.
If I throw a write() instead of writeln() with &gt; in it, my output is screwed.
I'm just trying to take the formatted HTML I use to write a frame in JS, and
show that HTML in an output window.

Go to my sight and click on 'show HTML' button.

Thanks again,
Andy Augustine
