Incorrect information in jQuery: The Basics tutorial example

In the section - Complete Example - the follow sentance should refer to <body> instead of <head>.

Also, while the custom script is included in the <head>, it is generally preferable to place it in a separate file and refer that file with the script element's src attribute

<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head>

<meta charset="utf-8"> <title>jQuery demo</title>

</head> <body>

<a href="http://jquery.com/">jQuery</a> <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5/jquery.min.js"></script> <script>



alert("As you can see, the link no longer took you to jquery.com"); event.preventDefault();




</body> </html>

I think that is not a bug. You've called Event.preventDefault() method, so it was expected to the link not working anymore.

I want to apologize, now I got what you mean. But, anyways, I think this subject isn't supposed to be discussed here.. :)
