Hi--
Everything in the XML/RSS category of scripts comes close to what I want.

My particular requirement however, is that in a small box on the web page, one message shows when the page is loaded.

Then I want a forward indicator that allows the user to click and the message in the box will change to the next msg. in the XML file.

In other words, I don't want anything automatic or moving unless the user wants it.

I also don't want tons of JS on the home page. I think this should be fairly simple, but darned if I can find anything, or figure out what to do about it.

My client will be emailing me bits and pieces to add to the file as they occur and I simply want to have the latest one loaded and the rest remaining to be cycled through by the user.

Any one have any ideas?? Thanks much.

. . . where each item is a variable in an array??

The button brings up the next one?

Everytime my client sends me a new snippet I simply add to the array??

But, then, would it be possible to correctly position the text in the right place on the web page?? (Page is CSS design.)

arghhh -- brain getting twisted.
