It should work as is. If you keep pressing the button, it will just keep adding more.

Are there additional examples of use of the script.[br /]I don't see how to expand upon the 4 lines of code in the BODY section.

Trying the "Send Script" displays a pop-up window with error message[br /][br /]"ERROR: Script add-and-remove-elements.html is missing at /www2/jss/cgi-bin/scriptbot2.cgi line 53."[br /][br /]This seems to be true using any of my browsers
