Hello. I'm trying to figure out how to pass values from a url into the javascript of the page, so when someone clicks on a link, they are sent to a page that displays stuff based on the values it gets from the link. What I mean is, using a url like

http://www.whatever.com/greetingcard...ipientname=Bob

To pass the variable Bob into the scrip in greetingcard.html so it will show a page customized for Bob (eg "Merry Christmas Bob!"). Ideally I'd like to be able to pass multiple variables as well ("Happy 11th Birthday, Bob! Love your brother Joe".

Anyway, I'd really appreciate if someone could lend me a hand here.
