JavaScript & HTML - Help!!

This is the first time I am ever using JavaScript, I am not even
eloquent in HTML, and all I am is someone who has Microsoft/Netscape
Webpage developers. What I am trying to say is that I am not an expert
in any of these webpage developing languages. Now, having said that,
here is my problem.
I got this program from the book JavaScript "The definitive Guide 3rd
Edition, by David Flanagan, published by O'Reilly,

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaS cript">
function printDate(){
var date = new Date();
document.write( date.toLocaleSt ring());
}
</SCRIPT>
The book shows that this part of the puzzel goes in the <HEAD> and
</HEAD> tags, the implementation of this function is within the <BODY>
and </BODY> tags. However, when implementing the function, I get
nothing, it does not display de date, it does nothing. Here is the
code:

<html>
<head>
....
<title>Jamiil 's Home Page</title>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaS cript">
function printDate(){
var date = new Date();
document.write( date.toLocaleSt ring());
}
</SCRIPT>
</head>
<body>

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"
style="border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#1 11111" width="103%"
id="AutoNumber3 " bgcolor="#00000 0">
..............
</table>

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"
style="border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#F FFFFF" width="10%"
id="AutoNumber1 " height="67" bgcolor="#00000 0">
<tr>
<td width="1009%" height="516">
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"
style="border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#F FFFFF" width="100%"
id="AutoNumber4 " bgcolor="#00000 0" height="523">
<tr>
<td width="100%" bgcolor="#00000 0" height="142">
<img border="0" src="allah.gif" align="left" width="126"
height="141"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="100%" height="19"><b> <font color="#FFFFFF" size="1">

//-----> HERE IS THE CODE IN QUESTION <--------
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaS critp">
printDate();
</SCRIPT>
</font></b></td>
</tr>
<tr>
..........

Now, can you tell me what am I doing wrong and how to get the current
date to be displayed in the table cell?

TIA.

For one thing - you did not spell JavaScript correctly in the Script tag.
Correct that and it should display the date in white text on black
background.
Even though you're using some deprecated tags and other errors, the date
shows up in a test page I pasted your code into (after closing the missing
table, body, and html tags

I need to access web sites using my scripts written in Perl. I use lynx and elinks to access web pages. It works fine, unless the pages has some Javascript code. Most Javascript stuff is working under lynx and elinks, but some doesn't. Is there any converter from javascript to HTML or PHP or PERL? Is there any ASCII web browser that fully supports Javascript. Thanks
