Getting past the specifics of your question, the general question was if there 
was a way to implement decision logic in HTML and the answer would be no.  One 
thing people forget is that HTML is not really a programming language, it is a 
text formatting process similar to the hidden control codes in your word 
processor.  Not that it can't be done within a HTML page, you just have to use 
an embedded programming language.

Subject: [WEB400] HTML GOTO 


This may sound stupid...but I'm pretty sure I have a valid use for this
functionality:


Is there an HTML equivalent of GOTO?

What I want to do is throw some JavaScript onto a page, and if certain
conditions are not true...I want to close the page/and/or jump around a
block of HTML code (code that is NOT part of the JavaScript).

Here's a code fragment that I want to perform:

<HTML>

<BODY>

<SCRIPT Language="JavaScript">
 if (document.refrrer != www.ebay.com) {
   document.write ("You DID NOT come from eBay...so you are welcome here!");
 else
  document.write("We do not allow eBay users to visit our website. Begone!");
 }
</SCRIPT>


<H1>Welcome Friend!</H!>
</BODY>
</HTML>


What I want to do is to put some kind of "goto" in that last block of code so 
that the remaining HTML is not executed. In other words... I don't want the 
"Welcome Friend" text to be displayed in this example.

Any ideas?  Window.close won't work becuase it's too easy for the user to just 
avoid closing teh window.
