[Seaside] I reported an error in error list - it was incorrectly classified as 'ignored'

The problem remains and does not have to do with the source view as Julian 
suggests. The problem occurs because the expression: method String single
quote 'external_links a' was changed to double quotes to "external_links a".
Subsequent handling of the onClick: message encloses the entire construct
in double quotes; hence the error as JavaScript does not accept embedded
unescaped double quotes.
This is a bug that needs to be address and not ignored. 
The analysis starts going wrong at Comment 4 and finally nailed in the coffin
by comment 17
This is not a bug in the Halo handling. the Seaside code is as follows:
renderContentOn: html 
	1 to: 5
		do: [:x | html div id: 'external_links';
				with: [html anchor
						callback: [x inspect];
						 with: x]].
	1 to: 5
		do: [:x | html div id: '\"external_links\"';
				 with: 'just some content'].
"the code for html button onClick: is incorrectly translated resulting in
code that does not work"
html button
onClick: ((html jQuery expression: 'external_links a')
onClick: 'return confirm("You are going to visit: "+ this.href)');
		 with: 'Attach Click'

When the code does not work, the result is that 'inform' is executed without
a prior execution of 'confirm'.
