    Help with Javascript assignment

    I need to find out whats wrong with this script but I'm having a tough time. I think I could do it from scratch but that's not the assignment. It's supposed to show the date. I think its missing a function or 2.

    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--


    var weekDays = newArray();
    weekDays[0] = "Sun";
    weekDays[1] = "Mon";
    weekDays[2] = "Tue";
    weekDays[3] = "Wed";
    weekDays[4] = "Thu";
    weekDays[5] = "Fri";
    weekDays[6] = "Sat";

    var monthnames = new Array();
    monthNames[0] = "Jan";
    monthNames[1] = "Feb";
    monthNames[2] = "Mar";
    monthNames[3] = "Apr";
    monthNames[4] = "May";
    monthNames[5] = "Jun";
    monthNames[6] = "Jul";
    monthNames[7] = "Aug";
    monthNames[8] = "Sep";
    monthNames[9] = "Oct";
    monthNames[10] = "Nov";
    monthNames[11] = "Dec";


    var today = new Date();
    var wkDay = today.getDay();
    var mon = today.getMonth();
    var day = today.getDate();
    var fyear = today.getFullYear();
    var out =weekDays[wkDay] + ", " + monthNames[mon] + " " + day +" " + fyear;
    document.write(out);
    //-->

    It's "new Array", not "newArray" and have a look at upper and lower case spelling, "monthNames" and not "monthnames".

    Both mistakes can easily be spotted by using any kind of error console by the way.

    Both of your actual errors have been pointed out, but as a general note, JSON would lead to cleaner code, even if not appropriate for this assignment.
    Code:
    var weekDays = ["Sun","Mon","Tue","Wed","Thu","Fri","Sat"];
    var monthNames = ["Jan","Feb","Mar","Apr","May","Jun","Jul","Aug","Sep","Oct","Nov","Dec"];
