Noob error: IE and JavaScript?

    I'm a complete noob at web pages, HTML, and JavaScript. I put
    JavaScript code in the web page I'm trying to build, saved it, and
    opened in IE to see it run. I also put in a <NOSCRIPT> message.

    When the page opened, I had the <NOSCRIPT> message displayed and a bar
    across the top saying IE had blocked active content. I selected "Let
    blocked content run". The <NOSCRIPT> messge went away, but the JS
    still wouldn't run. I went through my IE settings (XP Pro, IE 7):
    everything with Java is enabled.

    What am I missing?

    IE thinks you're trying to do something dodgy with the javascript, like
    create a pop-under advert for example. That is why it warns the user.
