    Question Help with snow script

    I have copied the scriped and saved the snow.gif to the same folder as the webpage with the code inside it but i just get the snow floating very fast at the top and does not move down. here is a copy of the code i used for it...

    <script type="text/javascript">

    /******************************************

    //Configure below to change URL path to the snow image
    var snowsrc="snow.gif"
    // Configure below to change number of snow to render
    var no = 10;
    // Configure whether snow should disappear after x seconds (0=never):
    var hidesnowtime = 0;
    // Configure how much snow should drop down before fading ("windowheight" or "pageheight")
    var snowdistance = "pageheight";

    ///////////Stop Config//////////////////////////////////

    var ie4up = (document.all) ? 1 : 0;
    var ns6up = (document.getElementById&&!document.all) ? 1 : 0;

    function iecompattest(){
    return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body
    }

    var dx, xp, yp; // coordinate and position variables
    var am, stx, sty; // amplitude and step variables
    var i, doc_width = 800, doc_height = 600;

    if (ns6up) {
    doc_width = self.innerWidth;
    doc_height = self.innerHeight;
    } else if (ie4up) {
    doc_width = iecompattest().clientWidth;
    doc_height = iecompattest().clientHeight;
    }

    dx = new Array();
    xp = new Array();
    yp = new Array();
    am = new Array();
    stx = new Array();
    sty = new Array();
    snowsrc=(snowsrc.indexOf("dynamicdrive.com")!=-1)? "snow.gif" : snowsrc
    for (i = 0; i < no; ++ i) {
    dx[i] = 0; // set coordinate variables
    xp[i] = Math.random()*(doc_width-50); // set position variables
    yp[i] = Math.random()*doc_height;

    } else {
    document.write("<div id=\"dot"+ i +"\" style=\"POSITION: absolute; Z-INDEX: "+ i +"; VISIBILITY: visible; TOP: 15px; LEFT: 15px;\"><img src='"+snowsrc+"' border=\"0\"><\/div>");
    }
    }
    }

    function snowIE_NS6() { // IE and NS6 main animation function
    doc_width = ns6up?window.innerWidth-10 : iecompattest().clientWidth-10;
    doc_height=(window.innerHeight && snowdistance=="windowheight")? window.innerHeight : (ie4up && snowdistance=="windowheight")? iecompattest().clientHeight : (ie4up && !window.opera && snowdistance=="pageheight")? iecompattest().scrollHeight : iecompattest().offsetHeight;
    for (i = 0; i < no; ++ i) { // iterate for every dot
    yp[i] += sty[i];
    if (yp[i] > doc_height-50) {
    xp[i] = Math.random()*(doc_width-am[i]-30);
    yp[i] = 0;
    stx[i] = 0.02 + Math.random()/10;
    sty[i] = 0.7 + Math.random();
    }
    dx[i] += stx[i];
    document.getElementById("dot"+i).style.top=yp[i]+"px";
    document.getElementById("dot"+i).style.left=xp[i] + am[i]*Math.sin(dx[i])+"px";
    }
    snowtimer=setTimeout("snowIE_NS6()", 10);
    }

    function hidesnow(){
    if (window.snowtimer) clearTimeout(snowtimer)
    for (i=0; i<no; i++) document.getElementById("dot"+i).style.visibility="hidden"
    }


    if (ie4up||ns6up){
    snowIE_NS6();
    if (hidesnowtime>0)
    setTimeout("hidesnow()", hidesnowtime*1000)
    }

    </script>


    could some one help me please, thanks

    If there isn't much else on your page, put this in the head:

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    height:100%;
    }
    </style>
    But, if you are planning on putting a full page of content on there with the script, do that first, as that will probably take care of it.
