Which Block Likes JavaScript?

I am trying to include some inline JavaScript with my HTML (It has worked before using the Text Block) This particular JavaScript code has the '&&' characters which introduces your friendly XML Parse Error. (And yes, even when using CDATA) Any (simple) suggestion(s)? (This is for Cascade Server v7.6). Thank you.

    I would suggest using an XML Block to avoid potential issues of your content being escaped. If the code is still being rewritten, try surrounding the code with a #protect code section.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you for the great feedback. Just FYI: I have followed your instructions and it didn't work with #protect (still getting the same XML Parse Error), however I did succeed by using #passthrough(and using the XML block).

    Not a problem at all, I am glad to hear I was able to point you in the right direction.

    If you are still seeing the error and need that JavaScript to execute within Cascade, try the <![CDATA[#protect version, which will ensure the code is skipped during any XML validation.

    I'm going to go ahead and close this discussion, please feel free to comment or reply to re-open if you have any additional questions.

    Have a great day!
