| line 62 column 124 - Warning: '<' + '/' + letter not allowed here
| The error message is refering to the end of the line containing the </H4>
| text.
| Can you explain whether the Javascript code is wrong or is Tidy wrong? My
| Javascript debugger has no problem with this line.

Script data is CDATA and therefore parsed, so a </h4> within doc.write is
recognized as an endtag for a unopen <h4>.
If you check your code with http://www.htmlhelp.org/tools/validator/ you'll
see this.

You have to escaped this with: document.write('<\/h4>');

| (2) Tidy gives me this message:
| Warning: <meta> unrecognized attribute value "http-equiv"
| My HTML 4.0 documentation indicates that the attribute value is valid. Can
| you explain this error message?
