View Full Version : Quanta+ HTML+javascript highlighting?

January 5th, 2010, 04:59 PM
Hello my problem is;

When I create a new html file quanta+ highlights the html code but does nothing to javascript code.

Highlight setting is Markup/XML everytime I create a file.

When I change it to Markup/HTML it highlights javascript coreectly. My default doctype is xhtml 1.1 How can I make quanta+ to highlight javascript by default? Thank you.

Just guessing here, since you haven't given us any example code, but try to use CDATA comments for your JS.

<title>Validating an email entry with JS</title>

<script type="text/javascript">

function validate_email()

I did as you suggested but highlighting doesn't change. It changes when I do tools -> highlighting -> markup -> HTML. Do I have to make the doctype HTML instead of XHTML?

edit: Maybe it is better to use an external js file for the code in XHTML?

Well, can't help you on this one then, sounds like you need to take it up with the developers of Quanta.
That being said, it is always preferred to use a dedicated JS file for your JavaScript needs. Allows the browsers and proxies to cache it, as well as making it much easier to maintain. ;-)
