Text in the Note and just before the note contradicts itself at least two times.

It gives a bad feeling about how much you master this subject.

If there is something better than document.write, then why wasting our time with reading this section ?

I suggest you completly remove this section.

Hey Henri,

Ouch!

Well, the section you're referring to is less than a page, and we feel that it's worth understanding why document.write is *not* a good idea. If we took it out, someone will invariably ask, "what about document.write?", and we're back to square one.
