[thelist] Onload not finding JS function

"Var" should be "var" and "New" should be "new".  Also ...

GetMonth should be  getMonth
GetDay   should be  getDay
GetYear  should be  getYear

JavaScript is case-sensitive.

I've got a page that starts with this:

function SetDates()
	alert("Now in SetDates!");
	Var Today = New Date();
	Var ThisMonth = Today.GetMonth();
	Var ThisDay = Today.GetDay;
	Var ThisYear = Today.GetYear;
	document.mainForm.arrivalMonth.SelectedIndex = ThisMonth;
<body text=#000000 link=#0033FF vlink=#0033CC bgcolor=#0000CC
onLoad="SetDates()"> ...

But when I load the page, I get an error "Object Expected" in the "<body..."
line, and the alert does not triggered.

What am I missing?
