Random flash banner in a table cell

Posts: n/a
I am trying to show a random flash banner in a table cell. I have 3
flash headers/banners. I can get it to open a page with a random
header using document.write(randomHeader) in the chooseHeader()
function, but I need an object reference in a table cell.

Does anyone know how this can be done in Javascript?

Thank you, Terry
