I have a code on the Internet and I have rewritten it, but there are t and n3 variable in the odd_order function that I don't understand their meaning. Please help me to explore it. :D. This code is generating a odd order magic square.

I think this is html and javascript problem, not scientific question, so I move it to JavaScript section.

This code is compressed. You have to either ask the originator or try to un compress it.
