Dear Experts,

I have a bar drawn on my website (see picture) that I have put as attachement. The bar with the date and the word "Contact" is the
bar that I am talking about. The bar is drawn throug a javascript. What I would like in the bar is instead of the word "Contact" I
would like the 3 icons displayed just like experts-exchange has (the mail icon, the notification icon and the suitcase icon). How can
I do that. Does someone knows the answer and is willing to help me.

<!-- Begin

var showdate	= "yes"		// SHOW THE DATE ON THE PAGE
var showbar2	= "yes"		// SHOW THE DATE ON THE PAGE

document.write('<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" class="headerbar"><tr><td align="left" class="printhide">');


// START DATE SCRIPT

   if (showdate == "yes") {

document.write('<div id="date-location">');
var d=new Date();
var weekday=new Array("Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday");
var monthname=new Array("January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December");
document.write("<span class=\"date-font\"><nobr>" + weekday[d.getDay()] + ", ");

document.write(monthname[d.getMonth()] + " ");

document.write(d.getDate() + ", ");

document.write(d.getFullYear());
document.write("</nobr><br></span>");
document.write('</div>');
}
else {
document.write('&nbsp;<br>');
}

document.write('</td><td align="right">');

document.write('<div id="contact-location">');

document.write('<a href="contact.htm" class="barlink">Cont@ct</a><br>');

document.write('</div>');

document.write('</td></tr></table>');

if (showbar2 == "yes") {
document.write('<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" class="headerbar2"><tr><td class="printhide">');
document.write('<img src="picts/spacer.gif" height="2" width="2" border="0"><br>');
document.write('</td></tr></table>');
}

//  End -->

Assuming you are not using an icon pack, and you have the icons as images you could simply change

document.write('<a href="contact.htm" class="barlink">Cont@ct</a><br>');

to

document.write('<img src="the_path_to_image1.jpg" alt="img_name"><img src="the_path_to_image2.jpg" alt="img_name"><img src="the_path_to_image3.jpg" alt="img_name"><br>');
