I am in the process of setting up a community web site for a rural area of
Northern Ireland. As part of this, I'd like to hava a small thing that accesses
an external (but within the main web site) train timetable database on a
regular basis, so that it can then tell local people what time the next train
is.

However, I have only recently begun to pickup HTLM editing, and am almost
totally ignorant of the various other languages. I have managed to devise
(i.e. decipher and modify an existing one) a java script that provides a
clock, and so suspect that it will be java that I need.

Does anyone know either how I should go about writing the necessary script,
or better still where something is that I could download and modify? A few
thousand Irish people would be eternally grateful to anyone who helped.

Danny.
