The code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “_//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN”

<html xmlns=http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml>
<meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; hcarset=UTF-8 />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<style type=”text/css”>
.urgent {
color : red;
font-weight : bold;
font-size : 20pt;
.notsourgent {
color : blue;
font-weight : normal;
font-size : 70%;
<script type=”text/javacript”>
function makeLessUrgent() {
} This javscript defines a function named “makeLessUrgent.” It looks for an element id “urgentmessage” and replaces its style with the class “notsourgent” defined in the head above.
<div class=”urgent” id=”urgentmessage”>THIS IS URGENT!</div>
<br />
<input type=button id=”msgbtn” size=”20” value=”Dealt with”
onclick=”makeLessUrgent();” /> Here the function “makeLessUrgent” gets actived “onclick” by the button.

Link to my non-working javascript homework. Yay!

    You’re going to be so mad when I tell you why your script isn’t working.
    In your Test function, you need to capitalize the “B” in getElementById.

    Then it should work. 😀
