Hi Mike,

For the most part, javascript is enabled by default in most viewer's
browsers. Unless a user has specifically disabled javascript (e.g. opted for
the highest security mode in their browser), your javascript solution will
work fine. Then all you need to do, as you said, is:

add "<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"
src="./footer.js"></script>" (without the quotes) to the bottom of each of
your pages, and;

maintain what you want displayed in footer.js.

Shouldn't be any caveats in this instance, unless some of the people that
will be viewing your pages are using very, very, old browsers.

Hope that helps,

Jan Cohen
