Whiel I am not that new to web site, I have never had much in the way of instruction. I see this on almost every page I check source on.

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
var SymRealOnLoad;
var SymRealOnUnload;

function SymOnUnload()
{
  window.open = SymWinOpen;
  if(SymRealOnUnload != null)
     SymRealOnUnload();
}

function SymOnLoad()
{
  if(SymRealOnLoad != null)
     SymRealOnLoad();
  window.open = SymRealWinOpen;
  SymRealOnUnload = window.onunload;
  window.onunload = SymOnUnload;
}

SymRealOnLoad = window.onload;
window.onload = SymOnLoad;

//-->
</script>

What is it?

And why is it at the top and bottom of some sites?

Thanks,
Josh

May it bve symantec, pop up blocker.

Yes you're rigth is in every site. That's a little bit strange. Even my own site that i'm sure haven't put it. I'm not sure but i think it's something relationeted with my Symantec sofware, related with the popup blocker.
Always before any other script in the header. Samme code, same position in the code? very strange.
I repeat i'm not sure but's that's what i think it is.
¿Do you have some symantec software(norton antivirus, firewall)?

Java Script Question

I never get anything like it, so it's likely to do with something on your computer.

Java Script Question

It's not part of a sites code it is inserted by some software you are running, from the letters sym it is almost bound to be a norton symantec product to do with ad or script blocking, one of my firewalls does the same thing when it blocks ad strings.

Norton does this

Norton pop-up blocker adds this. It effectively blocks windows generated by onLoads and onUnloads. You won't see it on your own pages - viewed from your hard drive, but if you view them from the web it will be there if you have NAV pop up blockers on.
