A reminder:

when putting a javascript in a xhtml 1.x doc, in the body, use the
cdata tag and escape it, like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
  // <[CDATA[
  function foo(){
  // ]]>

Also note that you need the space after // and before <[CDATA[
as well as after // and before ]]>

Works in ie, moz, etc
