Self closing iframe tag fails Javascript execution

This post is also available in: Dutch

On a project I am currently working on, I have to use an iframe. Since I included the iframeĀ in my web application, the Javascript code beneath it stopped working immediately. I did not see the problem at first and had a tough time finding out the iframe caused the problem. As it were, I used a self-closing iframe. The solution to the problem was to add a closing iframe tag instead of using a self-closing iframe… Simple solution, but I assume more people will face this problem as I did ;) .

Happy coding!
