    random background images

    What scripting language would be best for this. I am hoping to find or make a script that would display a different background image on a page everytime you visit the site. My understanding of PHP is a newby. I have read one book and played around with a few scripts in the past to modify them to fit my site. Due to illness I have been away from this stuff for a few years. I know nothing of java scripting. So what would be better to use to get this type of script working. I have always enjoyed this site, but I feel I may need a tutor to help me learn faster and understand easier.

    Either language will work just fine.

    I would go with PHP. Javascript isn't always supported in browsers. Also, the page size would be reduced because all the leg work would be done on the server before the HTML is delivered to the browser.
