This assigns the classname css1 to two divs randomly on page load.


<body onload = "assignClass()">

<div id = "div1">Content of Div1</div>
<div id = "div2">Content of Div2</div>
<div id = "div3">Content of Div3</div>
<div id = "div4">Content of Div4</div>

<script type = "text/javascript">
function assignClass() {
var thedivs = ["div1", "div2", "div3", "div4"];
var shuffled = shuffle(thedivs);
document.getElementById(shuffled[0]).className ="css1";
document.getElementById(shuffled[1]).className ="css1";
alert (shuffled[0] + " classname is " + document.getElementById(shuffled[0]).className); // for testing
alert (shuffled[1] + " classname is " + document.getElementById(shuffled[1]).className); // for testing

function shuffle(Arr) {
var NewArr = Arr.slice(0); // copy the array
var len = NewArr.length;
while (len>0) {
return NewArr;



At least once per year, some group of scientists will become very excited and announce that whatever they announced last year about global
warming is wrong.
