Dear Friends,
In the following code the removeUnsupportedChar() javascript funtion not calling when onKeyUp event fires. Why is that?

It works on my machine (Safari on Mac) More specifically, I get the "hello' alert continually. Which looks like it is because onBlur is called too. Maybe textCounter() does something that prevents the code from continuing. I recommend checking your JavaScript console for errors.
