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.

document.javascript.DayOfTheWeek

Something like that
Gary

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

<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>
