    Question How do I do this?

    Typing Text Script IE http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex10/text5.htm
    I am new at HTML and so I do not understand what you mean when you say to:
    To change the message, simply change the text inside the <span> tag. If you wish to change the type/size of the font, do not add the HTML tags inside the <span> tag. Instead, wrap them around it. Thanks for the help Elli

    Well to change the font, we use <font face="font">text</font>, yes?

    So all that line is saying is that you should do this:

    <font face="font"><span>Text</span></font>

    And not this:

    <span><font face="font>Text</font></span>

    If you are new to html, you must, must, must become acquainted with Lynda.

    http://movielibrary.lynda.com

    For $25 you can have access to all of her quicktime movie libraries for 1 month. I have found it is the quickest way to get up to speed. The flash training has been a godsend to me.

    A must see for a newbie is "learning html" it is 3 hours and worth your time. Then view the CSS movie to learn how NOT to use the <font> tag and use styles instead.

    Lynda.com is a wonderful resource for photoshop, illustrator, flash.... I'm currently going through the javascript videos.

    Good luck

    Thank-you cr3ative: I was just wondering what it meant when it said wrap it around and you have explained it to me.
    AND
    Thank-you designgrrl I will look into it, but since I am living in Denmark I do not like the idea of paying for thnigs over the internet. Scares me, You hear so many bad things
    I love Dynamic Drive and I think this forum was a GREAT idea

    As cr3ative says, if you wish to use HTML with the typing text script, such as make it bold, do this:

    <b><span id="typing" style="visibility:hidden" align="left">my text. my text.</span></b>

    As you can see, add <b> around the <span> tag, not within it.
