    window.prompt positioning help with prime function

    Hey i was asked to write two programs. one that determines if an integer is a prime and another to state all the primes between two integers. I have written the first and it works perfectly fine (if not a little over complicated) but I'm having trouble with the second.
    I worked out the basic algorithm for it but i cant for the life of me work out how to incorporate two window.promt() into the code without messing it up. there meant for a low and high number for the user to input before receiving all the primes in between those numbers. Here is the basic code.

    <html>
    <body>
    <script language="javascript">

    l=1000;n=3;p=1;
    primes = new Array()
    primes[0]=2;
    while (n<=l){q=1;
    while (primes[q]<=Math.floor(Math.sqrt(n)) && n/primes[q]!=Math.round(n/primes[q])){q++;}
    if ((n-1)/1000==Math.round((n-1)/1000)){window.status="Numbers checked so far: "+(n-1);}
    if (n/primes[q]!=Math.round(n/primes[q])){primes[p]=n;p++;}
    n+=2;}
    document.write ("What follows next are prime numbers:<br>"+primes.join(", "));
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    I apologise for how messy it is. help would be appreciated I wont have any hair left to pull out soon

    why don't you use forms instead of window.prompt ?

    Do not use document.write ! You will be obliged to reload the page to rerun the script.
