I edited your post to fix the code tags. Please take more care in the future to make sure that your code tags are valid.

If you are using document.write(), just place the script tag wherever you want the output to appear.

Hello Bear,

Thanks for your reply. But I am sorry to say that. I did not get your point. Where am I wrong?
Would you please tell me more in details?

Thanking You,

Sorry, but I don't know how to make it any clearer. As document.write() simply spits out its output inline wherever it is placed, you simply put the script tag containing the document.write() statements wherever you want them to appear.

Also bear in mind that this is a fairly antiquated way of inserting dynamic elements in a page. Much more commonly, dynamic elements will be handled on the server by a technology such as JSP or PHP.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
