Aunt_Jay says, the background from Absolute Background Textures
Aunt_Jay says, from the C drive
Cub_2 says, how did you get them to your C drive?
  angelbear_s says, right click and save as
Aunt_Jay says, the background has where you right click on the one you want and it opens a box where you download it to your computer,.  I think that is what happened anyway
sealin2 says, can't find it yet
Aunt_Jay says, the background is in a file on C drive called jpg
  vickyal_124 says, make sure your lookin in the right spot sealin
Cub_2 says, sealin.. right click on the image again and notice where it is putting it
  angelbear_s says, aunt jay - it looks like you up loaded it
Cub_2 says, do the save as again
  angelbear_s says, it's just not showing on your page
Aunt_Jay says, the flag is in a file on C drive called gif
Cub_2 says, AJ, so you basically did what I am telling sealin to do with the right click
  angelbear_s says, i see it at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~jacq114/
  angelbear_s says, cub - did you view source?
Cub_2 says, what you have to do... is to change the link in your html page to the image at rootsweb
sealin2 says, fou
Aunt_Jay says, does it have the flag at the top under the advertisement and is it yellow background?
Cub_2 says, yes angel, I know what needs to be done, just want to bring AJ along slowly
Cub_2 says, an AJ
  angelbear_s says, sorry
Cub_2 says, no even
Cub_2 says, it will work for you AJ because you still have the images on you C drive that it can find
sealin2 says, I found it and sent it

  vickyal_124 says, yea i know im missin the index at top
  angelbear_s says, here's north dakota  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~gen4abear/northdakota.html
  vickyal_124 says, but i told cub that last week
  angelbear_s says, did you look at mine?
  vickyal_124 says, yes
  vickyal_124 says, both look nice
  angelbear_s says, could you see it
  angelbear_s says, oh good ty
  vickyal_124 says, i told cub weeks ago i didnt have the top index
  angelbear_s says, next you need to see if you can hear the music at http://www.geocities.com/teddybearcreek2000
  angelbear_s says, i changed it and it's supposed to be accessable to netscape
  vickyal_124 says, not gettin any music
  angelbear_s says, oh no - i will work on it
  vickyal_124 says, but could be bacuse i have a ton of pages open lol
  angelbear_s says, my problem - is i can't tell if netscape can hear it without u
  angelbear_s says, i have one more way to program it and maybe that will work
  vickyal_124 says, it shouldnt matter should hear it either way ie or ns
  angelbear_s says, i am really getting into tables - i hope cub teaches us more about them
  angelbear_s says, you can hear it on ie
  angelbear_s says, wb cub
Cub_2 says, ty
  vickyal_124 says, wb cub
  angelbear_s says, cub - will you be teaching us about tables?
Cub_2 says, yes angel
  angelbear_s says, oh great ty
Cub_2 says, but I want everyong to get a bit comfortable with what we have done
Cub_2 says, tables can be very confusing
  angelbear_s says, yes they can be
  angelbear_s says, but i think you will make it easy
Cub_2 says, what was AJ url again?
Cub_2 says, I dont think anyone can make tables easy
  angelbear_s says, http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~jacq114/massachusetts.html
  vickyal_124 says, http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~jacq114/massachusetts.html
  angelbear_s says, lol vicky
Cub_2 says, much better
Cub_2 says, it must have been the other puter I was on
  angelbear_s says, i am really getting into them - but i think you can teach us the right way to do it
Cub_2 says, AJ.. your page looks great
Aunt_Jay says, did it
Aunt_Jay says, everyone can see it now?
  angelbear_s says, wb aunt jay
Cub_2 says, AJ, one suggestion though?
Aunt_Jay says, is this the address?  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~jacq114/massachusetts.html
Aunt_Jay says, yes what?
Cub_2 says, move the index above the state information
Cub_2 says, so your index is at the top of the page
Cub_2 says, I guess Marie was more correct calling it the table of contents
Aunt_Jay says, good idea
  angelbear_s says, yes - great one
Cub_2 says, and put a space before the logo
Aunt_Jay says, how do I do that space?
Cub_2 says, < BR >
Cub_2 says, or < P >
Cub_2 says, blank line more than a space
  angelbear_s says, cub - do you know i can make front page not < p > everything - so i can have single space instead of double
Cub_2 says, not really.. I dont know frontpage that well
  angelbear_s says, when i hit the return it always double spaces
Cub_2 says, let me look at it and I will see what I can come up with by next week
  angelbear_s says, the only way to change it - is to go into the html and delete and retype < BR >
  angelbear_s says, it would seem like it should be a simple thing - i just have not been able to figure it out - i appreiate any help
Cub_2 says, I will look at front page some this week
  angelbear_s says, appreciate
Cub_2 says, vicky, did you reupload your page?
  angelbear_s says, it
  vickyal_124 says, not yet
Cub_2 says, k, is it working from your local drive?
Cub_2 says, LF, did you get your background changed?
ladyfish86 says, yes
Cub_2 says, thank you Marie for helping LF
  Marieclassof86 says, yw
  vickyal_124 says, http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~alpg2/statesar.html
  vickyal_124 says, but still no background
  vickyal_124 says, an i even tried to upload it
Cub_2 says, you tried to upload the background?
  vickyal_124 says, yep
Cub_2 says, take the space out of the background URL before hometown
ladyfish86 says, may i suggest something??
Cub_2 says, and take out one of the two // before jvhal2074
Cub_2 says, No LF  
Cub_2 says, j/k
  vickyal_124 says, nope no background
ladyfish86 says, try just using BACKGROUND="diamond.jpg"
  angelbear_s says, i don't see the background uploaded on the genealogy page
  vickyal_124 says, nope
  angelbear_s says, that should have said i see them
  angelbear_s says, but not on ark
Cub_2 says, vicky, I did those two things and the background is working for me
Cub_2 says, 
  angelbear_s says, cub - you can change vicky's page?
  Marieclassof86 says, you uploaded the file right?
Cub_2 says, I viewed her source then saved it on my local drive
  angelbear_s says, oh ok ty
  angelbear_s says, duh huh
Cub_2 says, she is pointing to her hometown page for the image
Cub_2 says, so the background="diamonds.jpg" would not work
  angelbear_s says, i see she uploaded it
ladyfish86 says,  
Cub_2 says, 
Cub_2 says, that works
  angelbear_s says,
