function spout_message()
	var i = Math.round(200*Math.random()); 


<input type="button" onClick="spout_message()" id="spout_btn" name="spout_btn" value="spout">
<input type="text" id="spout_out" name="spout_out" value="Spout out a name">

now that you've seen my code, can you help me out? no matter what browser I use I can't seem to get that pesky onClick to work. It's supposed to send a random message to the value of the edit box. I know this isn't sloppy code, and it looks like it really should work, but there's function call problems. Error says "spout_message is not defined" same on Chrome and Firefox. I'm not going to go and try a sloppy browser like IE, just need the thing to work.

That's the only problem with the randomizer.

A better way to build your array:
