ContentPane and others: evaluation fails if scripts are not semicolon-terminated

Reported by: mtr Owned by: Sam Foster
Priority: low Milestone: 1.13
Component: DojoX Layout Version: 1.6.1

The code in dojox.html that evaluates scripts found inside HTML will throw an exception when this HTML includes inline scripts at least one of which is not terminated with a semicolon or newline. This appears to be because the "snarfScripts" code in dojox.html._base.js simply concatenates all of the scripts it discovers in the HTML into a single variable (i.e., byRef.code += code;) - I believe that these scripts need to be delimited with semicolons (or other statement terminators) to prevent syntax errors when dealing with HTML like this:

<script>var a=2</script>OK?<script>alert('a='+a);</script>

The HTML above works in an HTML page since the end of the script tag terminates the assignment statement. When this is evaluated by something like dojox.layout.ContentPane?, the concatenated script is invalid: var a=2alert('a='+a); Changing the code in _base.js to force semicolon separation of the concatenated scripts fixed this issue for me.
