    Default help with java script

    Hello,
    I am very new at web building. I tried to use the snow effect script on our Monastery web site. I don't know what I am doing wrong but when I publish the page the small frames appear instead of snow flakes. I can see the snow flakes on the preview. I changed the URL path to where I have the image.
    What am I doing wrong? (I use SiteSpinner)
    Any and all help is appreciated.
    SM

    This is not a valid path for a live page:

    Code:
    file:///C|/Documents and Settings/Owner/My Documents/WEBSITE/snow.gif
    You need to put the images on the server and reference their location there in the script.
