    Question,

    How do you plan on displaying the date? Is it going to be part of a GUI or are you printing it somewhere?

    I would suggest first making a method that returns the date. To help, look at this class

    Calendar (Java 2 Platform SE 5.0)

    well I just want it to display on the top left of my site. Here is the code I already have:

    <script language = "JavaScript">


    var now = new Date();
    var dayNames = new Array("Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thu rsday","Friday","Saturday");
    var monNames = new Array("January","February","March","April","May"," June","July","August","September","October","Novem ber","December");
    document.write("Today's date is " + dayNames[now.getDay()] + " " + monNames[now.getMonth()] + " " + now.getDate() + ", " + now.getFullYear());

    </script>



    It works, its just that I can't figure out how to change the font style, size and colour of it...

    Ohhh, you're talking about JavaScript not Java, those are two different things...

    Sorry, I'm unfortunately not going to be able to help you, but hopefully someone else knows a little bit of JavaScript.

    maybe you know a way to display the date in Java? where I can change the font size and colour? or it's only done through scripts?

    Check out this link, Maybe it can help you

    Tryit Editor v1.4

    I would just substitute your date in where the data is.
