This is my first time doing JavaScript I don't what I did wrong here, but the problem its not showing up the current date and time.


<script language = "JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
now = new Date();
localtime = now.toString();
utctime = now.GMTString();
document.wite("<b>localtime</b>" + localtime + "</br>");
document.write("<b>utctime</b>" + utctime);
</script>

This is what supposed to look like

<script type="text/javascript">
var now = new Date();
var localtime = now.toString();
var utctime = now.toUTCString();
document.write("<b>localtime</b>" + localtime + "</br>");
document.write("<b>utctime</b>" + utctime);
</script>

Don't call me stupid I'm simply following a tutorial if you want to call something stupid its the tutorial I been reading. Did I even mention I am still a novice? What an asshole!

Philip isnt calling you stupid Punny, that comment gets printed everytime he makes a comment, to everyone, its just a comment in his footer. Hes making an observation on life, not you.

second error - it should be now.toGMTString();

but as Philip suggests maybe your code suggests you should use
now.toUTCString();

full code now becomes -


<script>
now = new Date();
localtime = now.toString();
utctime = now.toGMTString();
document.write("<b>localtime</b>" + localtime + "</br>");
document.write("<b>utctime</b>" + utctime);
</script>

The code I gave you works for me and results in

localtimeThu Jul 21 18:34:56 UTC+0100 2011
utctimeThu, 21 Jul 2011 17:34:56 UTC

toGMTString is deprecated - use toUTCString instead.
<script language="javascript"> is long deprecated and obsolete. Use <script type = "text/javascript"> instead.


And no, I was not getting at you personally. As nomadic says, it was just one of my stock observations on life, not you.
