Hi,
After inserting the cursor trailer text, http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex13/trailortext.htm
the cursor trailing the text works fine. Except that when I scroll down the page the trailing text will not follow down the page. This also happens when I use the circling text trail. http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex13/circletext.htm

I am very much a beginner at having a web site. As a grandmother, I use the circling text and the trailer text for my grandkids pictures. On their separate pages I have their names following the cursor. What fun! I hope someone can tell me what to do about the no scroll thing.

Thanks so much,
Grandma Lois :)

What doctype are you using on the page? If most any, the scripts need to be updated. Change all instances of:

document.body

in the script to:

iecompattest()

Then, add this just below the credit block:

function iecompattest(){
return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode.indexOf("CSS")!=-1)? document.documentElement : document.body
}
