From Crockford's JSlint instructions:
eval is evil
The eval method takes a string containing JScript code, compiles it and runs it, but the computing cost-effectiveness of starting an interpreter to compile it outweighs other far more lightweight methods that achieve exactly what you want.
Try obtaining a reference to the desired element where you want to place your text or HTML, and drop your code in with the easy non-standard way: elementReference.innerHTML = nbr+" is nbr<br />" or the standards way elementReference.appendTextNode(nbr+" is nbr").appendChild(document.createElement("br"));
