    Hi. I have some js in the head section and my DTD is XHTML 1.0 Transitional. When I run my page through the validator, I get an error :

    character ";" not allowed in attribute specification list.
    Code:
    for (var i=0; i<navItems.length; i++) {
    (It doesn't like the semicolon after "length.")

    The js is from nickrigby.com for horizontal drop-down menus using CSS...

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function IEHoverPseudo() {
    	var navItems = document.getElementById("primary-nav").getElementsByTagName("li");
    	for (var i=0; i<navItems.length; i++) {
    		if(navItems[i].className == "menuparent") {
    			navItems[i].onmouseover=function() { this.className += " over"; }
    			navItems[i].onmouseout=function() { this.className = "menuparent"; }
    }}}
    window.onload = IEHoverPseudo;
    </script>
    Obviously, the semicolon is needed. How can I validate this without using <![CDATA[ ?

    Ideas?

    Cheers!

    Surround the script with HTML comments a la:
    HTML Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    .
    .
    .
    // -->
    </script>
    Note the Javascript comment that prepends the closing HTML comment.
