Why does eclipse support html files if you cannot see what they do inside of eclipse? If you were not following my last post, this is my revised code that I believe to be correct:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<head>
<title>Example</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
<script>
alert('hello world');
</script>
</head>
</html>

When I choose Open With > Web Browser, nothing happens. All I see is a blank window.

I know this is off topic but I don't know how to create a html file with working code on Mac OS X without eclipse. How do I do this?

I would like an answer to both questions.

Are you using the internal web browser for this? Alerts in particular may not work there.

That is what I am using. Is html the best to use, should I use a JavaScript Source File, or something else? My goal is to create a text based website game.

Can someone please tell me what is wrong with my code? The Alert is not working in eclipse or in a html file I have saved on my Mac OSX.

Try this, it works on my OS X and Linux:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>Example</title>
</head>
<body>
<script type="text/javascript">
alert("Hello world");
</script>
</body>
</html>
