javascript get month gives wrong month

If I tell it to get month and then put in if
statement such that if the month is this month
then document write so and so, but it does not write
and if I put in if month is one month earlier than present
then it works okay, so it is off by one month but the day is correct. I look at my calendar and it says todays date which is june 7 but the computer thinks it is may 7. How could this be?

Hello...

The getMonth() method returns an integer between 0 and 11, which corresponds as follows:

0 - Jan
1 - Feb
...
...
10 - Nov
11 - Dec

Also be sure your getYear() returns 4 digits like this:

function y2k(yy) {
   if (isNaN(yy) return 0;
   if (yy < 1900) yy+=1900;
   return yy;
}


today = new Date();
yyyy = y2k(today.getYear())

or if you target v4 browsers and higher only, always use getFullYear()
