<script type="text/javascript">

picList = new Array("images/topban1.png","images/topban2.png","images/topban3.png","images/topban4.png","images/topban5.png","images/topban6.png","images/topban7.png");
document.myrotate ="images/background_top.jpg"

thisImg = 0
imgCount = picList.length=7

function rotate() {
if (document.myrotate) {
thisImg++
if (thisImg == imgCount) {
thisImg = 0
}
document.bannerImg.src=picList[thisImg]
setTimeout("rotate()", 3 * 1000);
}
}
function daysTill() {
var day = 29 
var month = 03 
var year = 2011 
var end = " days left before the end of the Javascript course?"
var daystocount = new Date(year, month -1, day)
today=new Date()
if (today.getMonth()==month && today.getDate()>day)
daystocount.setFullYear(daystocount.getFullYear())
var oneday=1000*60*60*24
var write = (Math.ceil((daystocount.getTime()-today.getTime())/(oneday)))
document.write("<h2>" + "There are <strong>" + write + "</strong>" + end +" "+ "</h2>");
 }
