     The Christian Quotation of the Day (CQOD) provides a Scripture meditation, quotation, and quiet time reflection as a part of its daily service. CQOD is distributed as a free service through email, web page, blog, and RSS feed.
     Now a feature is available for any user to place the Christian Quotation of the Day on a web page, via Javascript, as seen below:


     Copy this code and paste it anywhere on your webpage

     <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

     Once your updated page is uploaded to your website, the script will update to the current day's quotation each time it is downloaded by any user.
     The text will appear in the default size and font at that point in your web page. You can change the size or font by bracketing the script with the <FONT... or <SPAN... directives, as suitable.
     It even works great in a sidebar—see below right.

     If you want a non-updating script, that is, a particular quotation to be displayed every time your page is loaded, first find the date on which the desired quotation was published. You can find it by checking the archives or using the keyword search facility. Then modify the script invocation as follows:

     <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

where mm is the month (March is "03") and dd is the day (the fifth day of the month is "05"). The acceptable range of dates at this time is March 1, 2009 to the present. Example: the quotation for March 18, 2009 is

The Javascript line required is

     <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

     The CQOD history for script use will be expanded in time.
