NOSCRIPT is generally a bad idea, it's too gross - remember it applies to 
any failure or any script on the page, not just a particular entry.  I also 
see no point at all in having it for the above.  The First friday of the 
month is always useful to everyone, you might aswell leave it there, and 
then add your calculated date.  Or use DOM methods to replace the text if 
you're really sure you want to.
