first lets look at your code:

<TITLE>Currency Converter B</TITLE>
var amountInPounds, amountInDollars, dollarRate;
document.write('Currency Converter Application B' + '<BR>');
dollarRate = 1.78;
amountInPounds = parseFloat(amountInPounds);
window.prompt('Please enter amount in pounds sterling, 10 to 120','');
while (amountInPounds != 10)
document.write('Pounds' + 'Dollars' + '<BR><BR>');
dollarRate = dollarRate * amountInPounds;
window.prompt('Please enter amount in pounds sterling, 10 to 120','');
amountInPounds = parseFloat(amountInPounds)

well i think part of your problem is that you told the script that while any value other than 10 to do this, yet you want a value between 10 and 120, you need something more like while (ammountinpounds < 10), so that all values below ten are discounted, and somthing like (i dont know the syntax in js) ammountinpounds >120 so that all values too high will be discounted. also, no where do i see any math to do a im a bit lost as too what your code is supposed to do.

Does you page have any output at all? If not then try moving the script from the head to inside of the body tags.
