//Configure below to change URL path to the snow image
var snowsrc="snow.gif"

Change snow.gif to the URL of the image you have uploaded.

Store the snow giff in the same file as your page and change snow.gif to snow3.gif as above. If your store it in another file such as images change name to images/snow3.gif.

Worked fine on my webpage and I'm a total retard when it comes to HTML!

I learn HTML from http://w3schools.com, have some experience with CSS and have pasted HTML/Javascript into Blogger both direct in the template as well as via "Add a Page Element" widget in their Layout with no problems. However, I know nothing of DHTML dynamic script and do not know if it is compatible with New Blogger which uses XHTML.

I have tried to implement the falling snow effect in this test blog
Testing Falling Snow (http://test-falling-snow.blogspot.com/)
but could not preview or save the change in the template. Error message:

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference.

This is what I have done. I have copied the script into Notepad, use "Find" to locate "snowsrc" then changed what was instructed into:

var snowsrc="http://bp0.blogger.com/_1354hN3vRng/RnEnhhejhlI/AAAAAAAAAFM/kM94kEIDQAg/s1600/snow.gif"

I then copied the altered script, pasted it into the template editor, but as mentioned above, did not succeed.

Is this script compatible with Blogger or did I do something wrong?

Thanks for any responses and help rendered.
