    I think he means rotate. ie. Refresh the quote after a specified amount of time.

    At the moment you are just ouputting the quote from javascript using document.write – but you can’t change existing text using document.write, as it only adds contents to the page. You should really learn a DOM manipulation library like jQuery, it really makes doing this kind of thing a lot easier.

    With jQuery your function might look like the following (including cssfreaks changes):



    What the world thinks?


    function rotateQuotes() {
    var whichquote = Math.floor(Math.random()*(quotes.length));

    By the way you can only have one <h1> per page, so you should really change those to h2 or h3.
