I have on page on a site I am working on that is a PHP page.  At the top it has an ad spot that is rotating 2 different ads.  It is working by coming up with a random number, then depending on whether it is even or odd, it displays one of the two ads.

Here is the php code:

<? if(rand(0,10)<5){ ?>
  <script type="text/javascript">
      google_ad_client = "pub-29xxxxxxxx";
      google_ad_width = 120;
      google_ad_height = 600;
      google_ad_format = "120x600_as";
      google_ad_type = "text_image";
      google_ad_channel ="6xxxxxxxxx";
      google_color_bg = "353269";
      google_color_link = "FFFFFF";
      google_color_text = "e0e0e0";
      google_color_url = "b8b8b8";
</script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"></script>
  <? }else{ ?>
  <a href="http://www.someadsite.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.somewebsite.com/images/web-ad-someadsite.jpg" width="120" height="620" border="0" /></a>
  <? } ?>

I need to pull off something like this, but on a standard .html page.  Is there a way to do this using javascript or straight html?
