You can't, you need a server side language or javascript

Can I write it down inside the tag without calling any function something like

<input type="text" name="DayOfTheWeek" value="javascript.dateDay()">

Thanks

No it would have to be a separate function outside the input.

There is no such thing as the name of a day in javascript - you have to create it yourself
And you cannot have javascript in an input that will fire automatically

http://jsfiddle.net/TM5Gk/

<input type="text" name="DayOfTheWeek" id="dayofweek" value="">
<script>
var weekday=new Array(7);
weekday[0]="Sunday";
weekday[1]="Monday";
weekday[2]="Tuesday";
weekday[3]="Wednesday";
weekday[4]="Thursday";
weekday[5]="Friday";
weekday[6]="Saturday";
now = new Date();
day = now.getDay();

document.getElementById("dayofweek").value=weekday[day];
</script>

The script needs to be after the input else you will have to wrap it in a function and then put an onload into your body tag. e.g.

<html>
<head>
<title>Test Day</title>
<script>
function setDay(){
var weekday=new Array(7);
weekday[0]="Sunday";
weekday[1]="Monday";
weekday[2]="Tuesday";
weekday[3]="Wednesday";
weekday[4]="Thursday";
weekday[5]="Friday";
weekday[6]="Saturday";
now = new Date();
day = now.getDay();
document.getElementById("dayofweek").value=weekday[day];
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload="setDay()">
<p><h3>Week Day</h3> </p>
<form method = "Post" action = "">
<p><label>Week Day<input name = "mDayoftheweek" type ="text" id="dayofweek"></label></p>
<input type = "submit" value = "Submit">
<input type = "submit" value = "Clear">
</form>
</body>
</html>

But this is preferable
<html>
<head>
<title>Test Day</title>

</head>
<body>
<p><h3>Week Day</h3> </p>
<form method = "Post" action = "">
<p><label>Week Day<input name = "mDayoftheweek" type ="text" id="dayofweek"></label></p>
<input type = "submit" value = "Submit">
<input type = "submit" value = "Clear">
</form>
<script>
var weekday=new Array(7);
weekday[0]="Sunday";
weekday[1]="Monday";
weekday[2]="Tuesday";
weekday[3]="Wednesday";
weekday[4]="Thursday";
weekday[5]="Friday";
weekday[6]="Saturday";
now = new Date();
day = now.getDay();
document.getElementById("dayofweek").value=weekday[day];
</script>
</body>
</html>
