    Javascript - Timed Script

    Heres what im looking to do:

    On a certain date reference one css.file but after that date forget about it.

    On December 1st display december.css but on 1st January display regular.css

    Any ideas? Could be PHP aswell?

    in PHP you can just use the date() function to look up that...

    I think Javascript has a similar function and would work in a similar.

    I haven't done anything with PHP or Javascript so I'm useless to you beyond that

    I think you can echo '<link....>'; for PHP and a document.write() in JS... oce you've checked the date...

    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $date 
    date("dmy");
    if( 
    $date "011208" ){
        echo 
    '<link ref="blah blah blah">';
    } else {
        echo 
    '<link ref="usual blah blah blah">';
    }

    ?>

    In ASP you could use
    Code:
    <%
    if date < #01/01/2009# then
    response.write "<link href='december.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />"
    else
    response.write  "<link href='normal.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />"
    end if
    %>
    And you can just place that where you would normally have your CSS reference.

    In PHP it would be
    PHP Code:
       <?php
    if (date(m)=="12")
    {
        echo 
    "<link href='december.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />";
    } else {
        echo 
    "<link href='normal.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />";
    }
    ?>
    Edit: Beat me to it Lithium!
    And yes, a document.write should work in the javascript, which shouldn't be too far off the PHP
