<head><title>jQuery Example</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="prototype.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
   jQuery.noConflict(); //For using other libraries
  // Use jQuery using function jQuery(...)
   //write your code here
  // Use Prototype with $(...), etc.

<body><div id="messagebox"></div></body>
