Javascript Question

Javascripts don't work with SVG

The code below should generate 100 random rectangles. But its not working. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong??

<script type="text/javascript">
function rectan()
var svgns = "http://www.w3.org/2000/svg";
for (var i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
var x = Math.random() * 5000,
y = Math.random() * 3000;

var rect = document.createElementNS(svgns, 'rect');
rect.setAttributeNS(null, 'x', x);
rect.setAttributeNS(null, 'y', y);
rect.setAttributeNS(null, 'height', '50');
rect.setAttributeNS(null, 'width', '50');
rect.setAttributeNS(null, 'fill', '#'+Math.round(0xffffff * Math.random()).toString(16));
<body onload="rectan"();">

<svg id="svgOne" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" width="5000" height="3000">
<rect x="50" y="50"
width="50" height="50"

All it does is one black rectangle form SVG section. I know that I made a mistake somewhere, but I don't know where.


There seems to be an extraneous double qouote in the onload attribute. You want this...

<body onload="rectan();">
