Douglas Adams: Quotes and Images

When the film Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy came out, I created two Douglas Adams scripts: one of quotes, and one of Douglas Adams photographs. Then I created a Douglas Adams webpage which displays a random quote next to a random image each time you reload the page:

The way I have laid out the page, the random quote is inside a box on the left-hand side of the page, and the image appears below a horizontal line on the right-hand side of the page. I've also got a link here that tells people how to add this random content to a webpage - and I'm going to go ahead and click on that link now so you can see how the script works "behind the scenes".

You can see the random content being displayed again here, although the page is laid out in a simpler format here:

Then, down below, are the scripts that make this content appear on the webpage. There is one script for the quote, and a different script for the image.

Finally, down at the very bottom there is a link to a page that shows all the quotes in a single table, and all the images in a single table. All of these rotating content scripts - both the date-based content and the random content - are generated from these simple HTML tables.
