I need to show and hide some divs depending on a date range

for example if the current date is between 1/1/2013 and 1/7/2013 I want so show the first notice and hide the rest. Note I cannot use Jquery.

<html>
   <head>
      <div id="hideshow1">
         <h23 />
         <span style="color: #006400">
            <marquee behavior="alternate" direction="left">Notice 1</marquee>
         </span>
      </div>
      <div id="hideshow2">
         <h23 />
         <span style="color: #006400">
            <marquee behavior="alternate" direction="left">Notice 2</marquee>
         </span>
      </div>
      <div id="hideshow3">
         <h23 />
         <span style="color: #006400">
            <marquee behavior="alternate" direction="left">Notice 3</marquee>
         </span>
      </div>
      <div id="hideshow4">
         <h23 />
         <span style="color: #006400">
            <marquee behavior="alternate" direction="left">Notice 4
            </marquee>
         </span>
      </div>
      <div id="hideshow5">
         <h23 />
         <span style="color: #006400">
            <marquee behavior="alternate" direction="left">Notice 5
            </marquee>
         </span>
      </div>
</html>

The code you posted is nowhere near being an HTML page.

I don't know what <h23 /> is supposed to be.

The marquee tag is non-standard, and has never been part of any standard.  Some browsers support it, but there is no guarantee they will continue to do so.  It should not be used in any context, and creates both usability and accessibility issues.

Th page is malformed with no body, and unclosed head and missing required tags.

As for hiding and showing based on the date range, you either set it when you generate the page on the server, or you use scripting on the page to set either the visibility or display properties in the CSS.

This is just a sample of what the html looks like. Only has to work in IE

Without some real working code for reference, there is not much that can happen.  All I've seen at this point is a bunch of invalid junk that looks like it was done by a ten year old.

The HTML works just fine for me.  

Here if this helps

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
     <div id="hideshow1">
            <span style="color: #006400">
            <marquee behavior="alternate" direction="left">Notice 1</marquee>
         </span>
      </div>
      <div id="hideshow2">
          <span style="color: #006400">
            <marquee behavior="alternate" direction="left">Notice 2</marquee>
         </span>
      </div>
</body>
</html>

You need a script like:
function ShowDivs() {
	var myDate = new Date(); 
	var myDiv1 = document.getElementById("hideshow1");
	var myDiv2 = document.getElementById("hideshow2");
	if (myDate >"1/1/2013" && myDate<"1/7/2013") {
		myDiv1 .style.display="inline";
		myDiv2 .style.display="inline";
	} else {
		myDiv1 .style.display="none";
		myDiv2 .style.display="none";
	}
}
