using document.write() is a very outdated way to add content. to give advice Id like to know, what you want to do there, currently I see no reason to use Javascript at all.

btw, you didnt define what the variable special is.

you can see the full code at lildaddysdowntown.com basically the script is to have the different specials show on different days........ specials is defined, i just didn't include the code above

if u look at the site, you can see the text is showing up behind the logo, not where it should be

EDIT: I found the problem and feel like an idiot i put a ) vs } by accident, but I'd still like to know some advice on a better way than using document.write()
