conflunce html macro

i used a html macro to display a static table. A small piece of javascript is used to highlight the rows depending on table values. this works well on the preview screen. however, in the actual view, color highlight is no where to be found. does anybody know what is going on here?

below is my code in html macro:

<script type="text/javascript">

$('#report td.status').each(function(){
if ($(this).text() == 'failed')

{ $(this).css('background-color','red'); }

if ($(this).text() == 'passed')

{ $(this).css('background-color','green'); }




<table id="report">
<tr><td>1</td><td class="status">failed</td></tr>
<tr><td>2</td><td class="status">passed</td></tr>
<tr><td>3</td><td class="status">passed</td></tr>
<tr><td>4</td><td class="status">failed</td></tr>

This alternative works. Please note – 

  • Use AJS.toInit instead of document.ready
  • Use AJS.$ instead of $
  • Don't place <head><body>, or <html> tags in the macro


&lt;script type="text/javascript"&gt;
  $('#report td.status').each(function(){
    if ($(this).text() == 'failed') { 
    } else if (AJS.$(this).text() == 'passed') { 
&lt;table id="report"&gt;
    &lt;td class="status"&gt;failed&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;td class="status"&gt;passed&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;td class="status"&gt;passed&lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;td class="status"&gt;failed&lt;/td&gt;
