    Default Snow Effect

    I refer to the following url: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex3/snow.htm

    GEE - it sounds so easy and looks so beautiful in the demo.
    What do I do wrong ? Again the body and head thing ...?

    Hi Peppy -

    You made another thread like this, and it's the same problem really - to use these scripts, you must have a good basic knowledge of how to edit and handle HTML.

    I suggest you read
    http://www.ncsu.edu/it/edu/html_trng/html_basics.html

    And
    http://www.cwru.edu/help/introHTML/TCh2.html

    Just for luck, you could read

    Dear cr3ative!

    Please don't let me go through all those information! I beg you!
    I need to finish my page quick.
    I am not good in learning by reading - better in learning by doing!

    Please help me (in the other thread, too)!
    I know that head is the upper area in my page and body below ...
    I use a Webdesign Editor called webdwarf to create my pages.
    I only have to insert a code in a text editor called code and the program does the rest.

    I did a fading pic slideshow and it really worked out fine!

    On this new page I already did a Fading scroller and
    now I want 3 other things:
    1) snow effect (I will use another small gif - a heart)
    2) Kissing trail
    3) Book Flip slideshow

    Just mark red, what I have to change or to fill out and I will do and understand it the next time.

    Please have a look at my other thread again.
    I did not work allthough I changed some things.

    P L E A S E !!!!!!!
