  Old  Help with JavaScript

So I was given this code in a class I'm taken, and it's directly from the book. But it doesn't show up. It's suppose to be in between two bars at the top of a web page. Can anyone take a look and see why this code isn't working?


<tr>
<td>
<hr size="5" />
<p style="margin-left:10%">
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--Hide from old browsers
var today = new Date();
var dayofweek = today.toLocaleString();
var dayLocate = dayofweek.indexOf(" ");
var weekDay = dayofweek.substring(0, dayLocate);
var newDay = dayofweek.substring(dayLocate);
var dateLocate = newDay.indexOf(" ");
var monthDate = newDay.substring(0, dateLocate+1);
var yearLocate = dayofweek.indexOf("2010");
var year = dayofweek.substr(yearLocate, 4);

var springDate = new Date("March 21, 2010");
var daysToGo = springDate.getTime()-today.getTime();
var daysToSpring = Math.ceil(daysToGo/(1000*60*60*24));

document.write("<p style="margin-left:10%; font-family:Arial, sans-serif; font-weight:bold; font-size:14">Today is "+weekDay+" "+monthDay+" "+year+", that leaves only "+ daysToSpring +" days until the start of spring.")
document.write("<br />Spring is the time to prepare your landscape for new growth of flowers and lawns. ")
document.write("<br />Call us now at (221) 555-9100 for a free consultation and free eestimate.</p>")

</script>
</p>

HTML Code:
	<script type="text/javascript">
	<!--Hide from old browsers
	var today = new Date();
	var dayofweek = today.toLocaleString();
	var dayLocate = dayofweek.indexOf(" ");
	var weekDay = dayofweek.substring(0, dayLocate);
	var newDay = dayofweek.substring(dayLocate);
	var dateLocate = newDay.indexOf(" ");
	var monthDate = newDay.substring(0, dateLocate+1);
	var yearLocate = dayofweek.indexOf("2010");
	var year = dayofweek.substr(yearLocate, 4);

	var springDate = new Date("March 21, 2010");
	var daysToGo = springDate.getTime()-today.getTime();
	var daysToSpring = Math.ceil(daysToGo/(1000*60*60*24));

	document.write("<p style=\"margin-left:10%; font-family:Arial, sans-serif; font-weight:bold; font-size:14\">Today is "+weekDay+" "+monthDate+" "+year+", that leaves only "+ daysToSpring +" days until the start of spring.")
	document.write("<br />Spring is the time to prepare your landscape for new growth of flowers and lawns. ")
	document.write("<br />Call us now at (221) 555-9100 for a free consultation and free eestimate.</p>")

	//-->
	</script>
You need to escape " and you had a typo... monthDay? monthDate?
