Javascript Question

Get the page file name from the address bar

I was wondering if it would be possible to get the page name from the address bar using jquery or javascript. I know this can be done using PHP but don't really want to as it is only a html website.

I.e. if the address is

www.mywebsite.com/hello.htm
how do I get the
hello.htm
part out of the address.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

alert(location.pathname)

If you don't want the leading slash, you can strip it out.

location.pathname.substring(1)
