Different Stylesheets for Different Days of the Week

<script type="text/javascript">
dayNames = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"];
dayNumber = new Date().getDay();
document.writeln('<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="' + dayNames[dayNumber] + '.css">');

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="default.css">

Name your css files accordingly: Saturday.css, Friday.css, Sunday.css, etc...

If JavaScript is disabled in the browser, it will revert back to the default.css file.

    Don’t use document.write, it will cause the page from displaying a white page for a few seconds before it processes the rest of page. I suggest using a document.createElement instead.

    Because white page of deaths is something your really want to prevent when you are working with dynamic stylesheet generation.

    For example:

    var dSS = {
    names: ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"],
    number: new Date().getDay(),
    link: document.createElement('link')

    dSS.link.rel = "stylesheet";
    dSS.link.type = "text/css";
    dSS.link.href = dSS.names[ dSS.number ] + ".css";

    document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild( dSS.link );

    I’m looking for a JS with the same purpose that could asynchronously load the remaining below-the-fold CSS in order to optimise the results in Google Insights, do you have any idea ?
