Fixit – Inline JavaScript

This test determines if your page make use of inline JavaScript code. Requiring the browser to pass markup for JavaScript code slows processing and makes web applications increasingly brittle. Moving all JavaScript code to dedicated JavaScript include files provides a clean seperation of markup, style and code.

Checking for inline JavaScript

This test checks to see if any inline JavaScript code is detected on the page. Inline code will take the form of “javascript:” links, “onclick” style handlers and similar markup. If any such inline code fragments are found, then the test reports a FAIL.

If you receive a FAIL for this test, you should consider moving all JavaScript code to specific JavaScript include files instead.



This test is based on a W3C mobileOK best practice. See for more details.
