    How would i make a pop up with one of three randomly generated messages. I dont want this pop up to show in a new window.

    This is what I have so far.

    <SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
    function get_random()
    var ranNum= Math.floor(Math.random()*3);
    return ranNum;

    function getaQuote()
    var whichQuote=get_random();
    var contents = '<html><head><title>Counter Window<\/title></head></html>';
    var quote=new Array(3)
    quote[0]="Switch to Firefox for a safer, more customizable web experience.";
    quote[1]="Don't forget to sign the guestbook!";
    quote[2]="Don't forget to vote in the weekly poll!";



    I found this code on the internet but it doesnt have the randomly gen. msg.

    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
    <!-- Copyright 2003, Sandeep Gangadharan -->
    <!-- For more free scripts go to -->
    var y1 = 140; // change the # on the left to adjuct the Y co-ordinate
    (document.getElementById) ? dom = true : dom = false;

    function hideIt() {
    if (dom) {document.getElementById("layer1").style.visibilit y='hidden';}

    function showIt() {
    if (dom) {document.getElementById("layer1").style.visibilit y='visible';}

    function placeIt() {
    if (dom && !document.all) {document.getElementById("layer1") = window.pageYOffset + (window.innerHeight - (window.innerHeight-y1)) + "px";}
    if (document.all) {document.all["layer1"] = document.documentElement.scrollTop + (document.documentElement.clientHeight - (document.documentElement.clientHeight-y1)) + "px";}
    window.setTimeout("placeIt()", 10); }
    // -->

    ...then in the body part:

    <div id="layer1" style="position:absolute; left:20; width:410px; height:10; visibility:hidden">
    <font face="verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif" size="2">
    <div style="float:left; background-color:yellow; padding:3px; border:1px solid black">
    <span style="float:right; background-color:gray; color:white; font-weight:bold; width='20px'; text-align:center; cursor pointer" onclick="javascript:hideIt()">&nbsp;X&nbsp;</span>
    Don't forget to sign the guestbook.</div>
