Tagline  Dated  List  JavaScript

This JavaScript (embedded into HTML) generates colors for modification dates in the list of classified tagline sections.  Colors are chosen in such a way, that brighter colors correspond to more recently modified items:

            Fuchsia  Modified within last    week.
Red Modified within last    month.
Brown Modified within last 3 months.
Black Modified beyond last 3 months.

To make script simple and quick it is assumed that any year contains 365 days and any month contains 30 days.  This might cause a slight imprecision on the border lines, but it's not important here, since colors serve only to hilight the most recent changes and dates are present anyway.

Script is fairly simple: date and color arrays are declared and date array gets initialized by last modification dates for the corresponding sections (when something is changed in the section, current date should be entered into this script this doesn't happen very often).  Day number of script execution is evaluated and is compared with each of the dates in the array.  Date difference drives the choice of colors to be saved in the color array.  Saved colors are used in the body of HTML as the color attributes of the corresponding dates in the document.write lines.
