Description Vladimir Riha 2012-11-16 14:32:52 UTC
Try to paste this snippet into xhtml file (I tried HTML5 and Java Web project):

            for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++) {

The "less than" in for statement is marked as not being well formed.

Comment 1 Marek Fukala 2012-11-27 13:58:10 UTC
The sample code is erroneous itself as xhtml file cannot contain the start tag symbol unescaped.

Correct code is:
            for (var i = 0; i &lt; data.length; i++) {

which however causes the javascript parser to complain about the character entity. 

Apparently the JsEmbeddingProvider doesn't translate these ch.entities to the target characters in the virtual js source.
