"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try myDate.toString();

And <br> should be part of string.

document.write("Copyright © 2002-2013 All rights reserved. <br />")

ok there's no semicolon after mydate or your first document.write:

should be:

var myDate = "09/10/2013";
There shouldn't be a <br/> tag outside your document.write... should be inside:

document.write("Copyright © 2002-2013 All rights reserved.<br />");

document.write("This page last updated: " + myDate);

The Date is ok the way you have it.  It's a string so doesn't need to be converted.

Here is a demo of it working:
