Can anyone write me a php script which says "Today is " followed by the day?

http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

This will have what you need. This is one of my most frequently looked up pages on the manual, I can't seem to remember alot of the date function's arguments, even though I use them nearly daily :)

Example 1 and 2 have full working lines of code. Just pick which way you want it to look.

Did you name the file index.php or pagename.php (whatever your page is named) instead of pagename.html?

And is it on a server, not being viewed locally?
