Can someone please error check my html :)

Post by CodeNub » Sun Oct 13, 2013 6:21 am

Basically, it is a message and it changes automatically everyday, the website this is on is http://www.codepr4ctice.webs.com
This code works I know that much, I got it from a different website (yes legally):

<html>
<body>

<p>Click the button to display a message based on what day it is today.</p>

<button onclick="myFunction()">Try it</button>

<p id="demo"></p>

<script>
function myFunction()
{
var x;
var d=new Date().getDay();
switch (d)
{
case 6:
   x="Today it's Saturday";
  break;
case 0:
  x="Today it's Sunday";
   break;
default:
   x="Looking forward to the Weekend";
}
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML=x;
}
</script>

</body>
</html>



Here's my one which won't work and I can't figure out why :(



<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
body {font-family:courier;}
p {font-family:courier; font-size:100%;}
h2 {font-family:courier; font-size:100%; text-decoration:underline}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<h2>Time to have some fun!!</h2>

<p>----------------------------------------------</p>

<p>Message Of The Day: <button onclick="myFunction()">CLICK ME!!</button> </p>

<p id="demo"></p>

<script>
function myFunction()
{
var x;
var d=new Date().getDay();
switch (d)
{
case 1:
x="School's started, noooo!"
break;
case 2:
x="Normal day at school."
break;
case 3:
x="Getting in the swing of things."
break;
case 4:
x="Getting tired of school now.."
break;
case 5:
x="Weekend tommorrow! Go away school!"
break;
case 6:
   x="Sport, then alot of sleeping today!";
  break;
case 0:
  x="Rest Rest Rest Rest, school tommorrow...";
   break;
default:
   x="I'll be honest, something's fked up...";
}
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML=x;
}
</script>

</body>
</html>

Hello,

I tried it and it seems to have worked for me. What exactly is it doing or not doing that you think is wrong?
