remove the
<script></script> code from the script and save it as something.js where something being the name. in every page you want it in add
<script type="text/javascript" src="path/something.js"></script> or if it is in the same directory add:
<script type="text/javascript" src="something.js"></script>

If you want to show some message in your pages you need to do the following things:

1. You need to provide some container/placeholder where the value can be displayed (divs, spans, inputs, etc).

2. You can create a new element in the document and display the message in it using the DOM based methods.

3. Each page will have a container/placeholder in which the message is preloaded but the placeholder/container is hidden using the JavaScript we show/hide the container based on your requirement.

If you directly place any HTML tags inside your JS file it is not going to bbe displayed as you've expected.

1. You can place the first section within your <script> tags:

window.onload = function(){
document.getElementById('mesg_container').style.display = 'block';

2. Place the below mentioned item in each of your page where you need to show the message. Within <body> tags. You can have a CSS style which is needed for your purpose.
<div id="mesg_container" style="display:none;">Your message goes here</div>

The idea is the HTML file will have a mesg_container element where you stored the message and initially it will be hidden and when the page loads the container will be shown.

I don't know why you would like to show the message using JavaScript....

Check the following code in which the JS code inserts a DIV element which contains the message in between two already existing elements:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<title>Dynamic Element Insertion</title>
<style type="text/css">
#mesg_container {
width: 120px;
padding: 2px;
background-color: #e5eef9;
border:1px solid red;
<script type="text/javascript">
function initMsgElemInsert(){
var bdy = document.body;
var newEl = newElem('div','message goes here');

function newElem(tag,value){
var newEl = document.createElement(tag);
newEl .id = 'mesg_container';
return newEl;

window.onload = function(){
<div id="first">First Div</div>
<div id="sec">Second Div</div>

bro, i think u misunderstood...i want this every thing in .js file not in html...i dont want to touch html pages...whenever i want to change the message just open .js file and change the msg text and upload on web...thats it

First of all where exactly you want to show your message? You didn't mention the position so it is difficult to tell you how you can place your message in your pages.

Secondly if you check my JS function it demonstrates how you can insert an HTML element without touching HTML pages if you know the structure of your pages you can modify the JS code in a manner that fits for your purpose.

My code was just to demonstrate how the elements is being inserted dynamically using JS code.

This code i made last night...put this code in .js file and message will appear on each page of website where .js linked

document.write('<div style="border:1px solid #cccccc; BACKGROUND: #F4F4F4; MARGIN: 4px auto; OVERFLOW: hidden; WIDTH: 765px;

HEIGHT: 21px"><div style="font-size:15pt; text-align: center;">Happy New Year</div></div>'

I am sorry i was a bit busy with my work last day. Here is another method for doing the same which is fully DOM based one compared to the one you've developed.

Insert the following items within the <style> tags
border:1px solid #cccccc;
background: #F4F4F4;
margin: 4px auto;
overflow: hidden;
width: 765px;
height: 21px"

text-align: center;

function putMesg(){
//New element ceations
var div1 = document.createElement('div');
var div2 = document.createElement('div');

//Assigning a unique id to the newly created elements
div1.id = "outerdiv";
div2.id = "innermsgdiv"';

//Assigning message into a variable
var msg = "Wish you a very happy and proseperous new year 2008";

//Appending the a text node which contains the message to the inner most container

//Appending the inner most container to the outer container

//Inserting the message container as the first child node in the body section of the document.

1. I would prefer to avoid the inline styles so that we can separate presentation from within the JavaScript code.

2. You need to call the putMesg function once the DOM loaded completely. window's onload event would be an ideal candidate.
