    CDATA error

    miquael Level 1

      In Flash Builder, I'm getting this problem:


      "invalid character or markup found in script block.  Try surrounding your code with a CDATA block".


      Tho in fact, my code is already surrounded with a CDATA block, and the syntax is correct. What is the problem here?

          You have a bracket missing or a bad character somewhere. Im not going to dig it out for you.


          I would suggest removing all the code and pasting it back in, piece by piece. That will help you figure out where the bad syntax/character is.


          I noticed this too:



          ^ not sure if you need a semicolon at the end there???
