I am having trouble with this code:

<!DOCTYPE html>


    <title>AJAX Chat Test</title>

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

    <!-- Script -->
    <script src="jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">

    $(document).ready( function(){
        $("#post").submit( function(){
            return false;



    <!-- Messages display here -->
    <div id="chats"></div>

    <!-- Post the messages -->

    <form id="post">

    <input type="hidden" value="<?php echo $_SESSION['username']; ?>" />
    <label>Message</label>&nbsp; &nbsp;
    <input type="" maxlength="140" name="messages" />
    <br />

    <input type="submit" value="Chat" />




The problem is, the .load() function won't work. I have tried everything, nothing worked. The scripts, fixes, everything.

The first issue I see is that your braces and parethesis are not matching up correctly in the jQuery block.
