This is the code I have so far, but something seems to be wrong with it. I don't know what though. Could someone point out what I'm doing wrong?

<HEAD>
     <TITLE>Fun with Phonics</TITLE>

</HEAD>
<BODY>
<CENTER><IMG SRC="fun.jpg" HSPACE=5 VSPACE=5 HEIGHT=64 WIDTH=129></CENTER>

<CENTER><HR Width="75%"></CENTER>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT">
<!--Hide from old browswers
	document.bgColor="red"
	document.bgColor="white"
	document.bgColor="blue"
	document.bgColor="white"
	document.bgColor="green"
	document.bgColor="white"
	document.bgColor="blanchedalmond"
	var tNow = new Date()
	var tlocDate = tNow.toLocaleString()
	var tDate = tlocDate.substring(0,10)
	document.write("H2><CENTER>Welcome, today is "+tDate+"</CENTER></H2>")
	var intro1 = "Hi, thanks for visiting our Web site, but we have moded. Please make a note "
	var intro2 = "of our new URL (www.funwithphonics.com) and notify the Webmaster about our new "
	var intro3 = "location. Click<A Href='http://www.scsite.com/'> here </A> or wait 15 second "
	var intro4 = "to be moved automatically to our new site."
	var introMsg = intro1+intro2+intro3+intro4
	document.write("<H4><FONT Color='firebrick'>"+introMsg+"</H4></FONT">

document.write("<H4><FONT Color='firebrick'>"+introMsg+"</H4></FONT">

One thing that jumps out in the code presented is the above needs to have a closing ")".And also you are closing your string in the above inside the </FONT> tag.
Should be:

document.write("<H4><FONT Color='firebrick'>"+introMsg+"</H4></FONT>");

Try debugging in Firefox with Firebug or if you are using IE8 hit f12 and use the developer tools. The error messages will be cryptic but it will give you a general idea of where the problem lies.

It seems that something else is wrong or missing..It's still not working correctly

document.write("H2><CENTER>Welcome, today is "+tDate+"</CENTER></H2>")

The above should be:

document.write("<H2><CENTER>Welcome, today is "+tDate+"</CENTER></H2>")

Every tag needs to have an opening < and a closing > and every <tag> set needs to end with the corresponding </tag> set. For example if you have a <p> you need to end with </p>.

you have typed > instead of ) at the end of line no 28 of your code, remove > and type )

document.write("<H4><FONT Color='firebrick'>"+introMsg+"</H4></FONT" )

Hi,
Your code looks fine, all it needs is a little arrangement in the order of the tags last posted by urtrivedi and including changes made by scrappedcola. Might as well give it a try and see if i can fit your needs...
