    Issues with printme function

    Hey All,

    I am a complete JS novice. I recently copy/pasted this code into a WP site and it worked. Today I found that something in it is broken, but I don't know what to look for. Any help?

    This code is supposed to allow someone to print a coupon by opening the coupon image in a new window and immediately open a print dialog box as well. Once the print button is clicked, it should then close the new window.

    Here is a link to the specific page:

    Here is the code as I have it:
    <script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
    function makepage(src)
      return "\n" +
        "<head>\n" +
        "\n" +
        "<script>\n" +
        "function step1() {\n" +
        "  setTimeout('step2()', 10);\n" +
        "}\n" +
        "function step2() {\n" +
        "  window.print();\n" +
        "  window.close();\n" +
        "}\n" +
        "</scr" + "ipt>\n" +
        "</head>\n" +
        "<body onLoad='step1()'>\n" +
        "<img src='" + src + "' />\n" +
        "</body>\n" +
    <div  _mce_tmp="1">
    function printme(evt)
      if (!evt) {
        // Old IE
        evt = window.event;
      var image = evt.target;
      if (!image) {
        // Old IE
        image = window.event.srcElement;
      src = "http://www.annie-mac.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Appraisal-Credit-Cropped.jpg";
      link = "about:blank";
      var pw = window.open(link, "_new");
    // ]]></script>

    I found these errors in the Chrome console:

    Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < residential-appraisal-credit:323

    3Uncaught ReferenceError: printme is not defined residential-appraisal-credit:348

    Uncaught ReferenceError: printme is not defined residential-appraisal-credit:357

    Firefox is more explicit in this case:
    SyntaxError: syntax error


    (line 323, col 1)
