Hi Michael,

I have copied and pasted your code and it runs fine for me in IE, Firefox and Opera.

Are you sure you have the jquery-1.3.1.min.js as pointed to in your head, or do you have the normal jquery-1.3.1.js?

That's all I can think of really

Cheers

You are calling the code before the element is rendered. You need to either use dom ready or put the code after the button.

I think I figured out the problem. I have that intellsense file and it is so picky. If you have the jquery script before the intellsense file at run time I don't know what happen it does not work. If you move the file up so the intellisense file is above the jquery script it works.

I don't remember it every being that pick before.

Actually he's not. The code is in a jQuery ready handler.

jQuery itself is a good on-page citizen, making sure that it doesn't clobber other libraries (even going so far as to have a mechanism to relinquish the $ name to other libraries).

Other libraries are generally not so friendly about sharing the page.
