This article was very useful to me
Im rewriting cobol date routines, that I used at a previous job, into javascript.

I have a question tho. the LeapYear function must have some implied elses in it to work properly. Can you shed some light on this?

There appears to be an error in the DayOfWeek() function described in this article. It all seems to work okay, until you enter dates in March 2001 or later. Looks as if there's some kind of leap year issue.

Would love to know the fix for this, if you have it.

I wrote a similar routine myself, in rexx, round about the turn of the millennium. Subsequently I discovered a neat algorithm to determine the day of the week in a Penguin paperback "The Magic of Lewis Carroll" which seems bug-free for past and future dates.

PS Your article can't make its mind up whether Monday's child is full of grace or fair of face. In my nursery book, it's the latter!

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

You quoted the poem correctly, but made the results incorrect by changing "fair of face" for "full of grace."

you got the wrong date because you entered day/month/year rather than month/day/year
