So replace the text with the date, you don't have to have both, it's just 
slightly different script.

Could you show us how you ensure your script executes with no errors at all, 
and exactly as you expect on all user agents, in all scenarios - that's the 
problem with NOSCRIPT, because you can't know what actually happens to your 
script, there's no point only having the fallback in the situation where the 
script wasn't attempted to be executed at all!
