<Script>
var g=new Date(2001,7,12)
g.setDate(g.getDate()+200)
alert(g.getDay()+'/'+g.getMonth()+'/'+g.getYear())
</script>

Good Luck...:)

Works for addition or subtraction...

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!--
  function asDays(ddmmyy,days) {
      // parse ddmmyy for day, month, year
      var dateArray = ddmmyy.split('/');
      sdate = new Date(dateArray[2],dateArray[1]-1,dateArray[0]);

  // add the number of days as milleseconds
        var odate = new Date(sdate.getTime() + (days * 86400000));

  // return value
      return (odate.getMonth()+1) + '/' + odate.getDate() + '/' + (odate.getYear() + 1900);
  }

 
  alert( asDays("12/7/2001",200) ); // gives 1/27/2002
  alert( asdays("12/7/2001",-200);  // gives 12/23/2000
  //--></SCRIPT>
