i found this code on the dynamic dive site under text effects, at the bottom of the list, and instead of replacing the line of code with the next one when its done i want to make it make a new line on the page with the cursor effect still on. I've seen in done on a site before and they look exactly the same except the one on the dynamic site replaces the lines with each other instead of making a new page line which is what i want it to do here is the code.
