was using in my code.

<script type="text/javascript"


this morning, $(location).attr('href', someHrefString ) was not working for me like it did yesterday. I changed my code to use jquery 1.4.2 from googleapis and the code worked again.

<script src=""

You shouldn't use .attr() on non-DOM elements. You can just do:

window.location.href = hrefstring;
