Hi,

I am working on a web page that displays a date that is read in from a text file.

Found this simple piece of jQuery code which is working in Safari only:

      <script language=javascript type='text/javascript'>
          //process date file
          jQuery.get('date.txt', function(data) {
          $('#refreshdate').html(data);
          });
        </script>

        <a id="refreshdatelabel" title="RefreshDateLabel" >Reports last refresh date: </a>
        <a id="refreshdate" title="RefreshedDate" >Sept 15, 2011</a>

Safari displays the file's Sept 19, 2011 date.

IE & Chrome both display the defaulted anchor date (Sept 15, 2011) & Firefox doesn't display anything at all for refreshdate (does display refreshdatelabel).

Suggestions are welcomed!

have it now working on all browsers with (in addition to testing on web server instead of local) :

      <script language=javascript type='text/javascript'>
          function contentDisp()
          {
            $.ajax({
               url : "date.txt",
               success : function (data) {
                 $("#refreshdate").html(data);
               }
             });
          }
        </script>
