Swapping random flash banners

I am trying to swap/rotate random flash banners using the following
Javascript code. I have 3 flash headers/banners. I can get it to
open a page with a random header using document.write( randomHeader) in
the chooseHeader() function, but the rest of the page doesn't get
displayed with that approach.

Instead, what I would like to do is comment the
document.write( randomHeader) line, and use the random reference I have
in the table cell towards the bottom of the file.

Also, the setTimeout method in the Timer() function produces an
"Object expected" error. I've tried giving it more time, to no avail.
window.setTimeo ut("Timer()",15 000);

Could someone point out corrections I need to make, or alternate
solutions (using Javascript)?

Thank you, Terry

Better done with
closeTime = new Date().valueOf( ) / 1000 | 0
unless you do want rollback at midnight (add %86400), on plausible
assumptions about how you use it.

When posting code to News, do not allow your software to introduce line
breaks; it has the effect of making some of us not bother to read it.
Use two spaces, not a tab, as the indent unit.

This is driving me quite nuts. I have created several flash banners for a record label. They are meant to link to an artist splash page. Simple enough, right?

They can see the banner. the banner animates as it should, but clicking the banner produces...
