I refer to the following url: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex3/snow.htm

GEE - it sounds so easy and looks so beautiful in the demo.
What do I do wrong ? Again the body and head thing ...? :confused:

Hi Peppy -

You made another thread like this, and it's the same problem really - to use these scripts, you must have a good basic knowledge of how to edit and handle HTML.

I suggest you read
http://www.ncsu.edu/it/edu/html_trng/html_basics.html

And
http://www.cwru.edu/help/introHTML/TCh2.html

Just for luck, you could read

Dear cr3ative!

Please don't let me go through all those information! I beg you!
I need to finish my page quick.
I am not good in learning by reading - better in learning by doing!

Please help me (in the other thread, too)!
I know that head is the upper area in my page and body below ...
I use a Webdesign Editor called webdwarf to create my pages.
I only have to insert a code in a text editor called code and the program does the rest.

I did a fading pic slideshow and it really worked out fine!

On this new page I already did a Fading scroller and
now I want 3 other things:
1) snow effect (I will use another small gif - a heart)
2) Kissing trail
3) Book Flip slideshow

Just mark red, what I have to change or to fill out and I will do and understand it the next time.

Please have a look at my other thread again.
I did not work allthough I changed some things.

P L E A S E !!!!!!! :o :(
