Any idea or help would be greatly apreciated. thanx! i want to place this on my second page on my web site (www.afrique2007.org) it would be the donations and such. The text with the black background.

u can use the <marquee> tag for horizntal movement, but that is only in IE. it if you have question about editing a movie go in the film editing form and post there. i dont know of any html tag that makes a horizontal text shift. if you realy need i you could use CSS or someother language or make a gif.

your looking for a shoutbox. this is generally a PHP file. you can get these from various places on the net, most are free but some may charge for it.

I did a google search on these. here are the results from it.

Hey, I am too a new beginner to web design.

Click here

Check this link and tell me if that's what you are looking for, and if it is, well the code to this was simply done with the marquee tag in html mentioned early in this post.

which is:
<marquee behavior=scroll direction=up width="333" height="30">
<p> Your Message</P>
</marquee>

Please let me know if that was any help to you.

the only drawback to that is that they would need to update that code daily. with the PHP file they could tie it directly to a db which could be "attached" to their money management account of choice. even still, this is something that needs to be looked into. I'm not sure if a place like Paypal would allow that kind of connection.
so they are inherintly stuck with having to have their own database through a shopping cart setup.

I could be wrong but I don't think FF supports the marquee tag

Instead why don't you try a small java applet to do what you want

Java applets

One of these should do the trick.
