hmmm .... sort of stumped.

For a test, I made a script that pulls a random "bumper-sticker" quote
out of a file and sends it back as Javascript.

Put this on a test page of yours and see what happens:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.catpin.com/bumper_sticker3.php"></script>

Wherever that line is, when you view your web page, it should have a random quote.

It's using the same code that I had above (in post #2).

how would you put <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.catpin.com/bumper_sticker3.php"></script> into a function for javascript to call this php file?

I think it would have to be AJAX, a combination of PHP and javascripting.
You may have to ask this in the javascript forum, as I'm not a javascript expert.

Since that PHP page returns actual JavaScript code (example, document.write("Is it time for your medication or mine?") , you need to simply drop that line you showed ANY PLACE in your page where you want the text to appear.

Just as a simple example:


....
<span style="font-size: large; color: red;">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.catpin.com/bumper_sticker3.php"></script>
</span>
...

There are other, more eloquent ways to use content from PHP pages, but given what you already have there, this is about the only useful way to do it.
