Re: Which mathematical operator is allowed in HTML

As HTML is sent as a string, everything must be converted to a non-string if
you want to use it that way, so strictly speaking HTML has no mathematical
operators or integers. However you can convert a string into an integer or
any thing else using script..

Both JS and VBS have specific functions for doing this, and also have the
full range of operators.

Subject: Which mathematical operator is allowed in HTML

It's really two simple questions:

Which mathematical operator are allowed in HTML? and
Is there any way to set numerical variables in HTML?
