JS problem

hi, i just started using js and i try adding date to my web, i used this code : __extrnal script___ var mydate=new Date() var year=mydate.getYear() if (year < 1000) year+=1900 var day=mydate.getDay() var month=mydate.getMonth() var daym=mydate.getDate() if (daym<10) daym="0"+daym var dayarray=new Array("Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday") var montharray=new Array("January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December") document.write("<font color='fffff' face='Arial'><b>"+dayarray[day]+", "+montharray[month]+" "+daym+", "+year+ "</b></font>")

and imported it using (in my html website): <p><script src="js/datescript.js" id="sc"></p> now i want the text to look like p in my css, how do i do it?

thank you, itiel.

I'm not sure if your code runs, but to answer the question about getting a string to be styled as a paragraph element you could do the following:

<p id="date_paragraph"></p>
document.getElementById('date_paragraph').innerHTML = 'your string';
