    No, why is THIS not valid

    xhtml10 strict:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    document.write('<a style="color:white" href="'+'mailto:'+'cg9com'+'@'+'juno.com'+'">'+'cg9com'+'@'+'juno.com'+'</a>');
    </script>

    Unless i'm much mistaken, inline javascript is not permitted in XHTML. If you put that code in an external .js file, it should validate fine.

    There's no explicit restriction on using inline scripts with XHTML, but any occurance of "<" or ">" in the script code will cause a problem.

    To get around that you can use a CDATA section:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
    
     document.write('<a style="color:white" href="'+'mailto:'+'cg9com'+'@'+'juno.com'+'">'+'cg9com'+'@'+'juno.com'+'</a>'); 
    
    // ]]></script>
    Text within a CDATA section will be ignored by the XML parser.

    Also, if you use document.write() to generate HTML dynamically, you need to be sure that HTML is valid.

    That's interesting; presumably you could also use entities to make it valid, like with XPath?
