My javascript knowledge is not very sound. I have the following javascript in the jsp page and I don't want it to be in jasp, rather I have tried to move the js related code to .js file and tried to include it in the jsp.
But it's not working. any suggestion on how to do this?
And also what is the best practice to follow to avoid the javascript compatability problem with browsers?

Moving the script (learn to indent!) to an external file should not be an issue. Chances are you are not addressing the file properly and so it's not actually getting loaded.

Gander at the JSP FAQ for info on successfully using server-relative URLs to address resources such as JS files.

Your best bet for avoiding those rage-inducing browser differences is to employ a JavaScript library that has already done all the hard work for you. I personally am a big fan of jQuery (to the extent that I ended up writing a book about it).
I guess everyone has an angle. Fine, what do you want? Just know that you cannot have this tiny ad:
