make the limit variable global to this function starttime(), and set the value of limit variable in onload

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
var limit;
function starttime()
{
limit=parseInt(limit);
document.getElementById("yes").innerHTML=limit;
if(limit>0)
{
limit--;
setTimeout(starttime(limit),1000);
}
else
{
document.getElementById("yes").innerHTML="Advertisement Visited Succesfully";
}
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload="limit=<?php echo $_REQUEST[time]?>;starttime()">
<div id="yes">
</div>
</body>
</html>
