Javascript Operators === & !==

Javascript Operators === & !==
The following example will demonstrate the Tip:
var x;
x = 0;
var y;
y = '0';
x is numeric, while y is char.

On comparing them using the "==" operator, it will give true !
alert('x == y : ' + (x==y));

To do so, we will use the '===' operator:
alert('x === y : ' + (x===y));
which checks on the Value and Type, so it will give false.

Same for the !== operator.
alert('x != y: '; + (x != y));
it gives false !!
alert('x !== y: '; + (x !== y));
it gives true


So, to assure an accurate comparison datatype and value don't use the normal operators == and != but use === and !== operators.
