    Hi, im sorry if you guys got mad for me downloading geffys and o 87s sites but my intention was just to take it and see how they did it and all the little codes for tables and his java for the date. i was just gonna take it and change the background and color and all the buttons so it would basically be unique and diff looking. I just did it to see how they customized the table. anyway!!! Can someone tell why the GIF isn't working aand could you also tell me if the background music runs alright (even on 56k and broandbands)

    rather than ask a question about every little problem you encounter maybe you should read up on html first and learn about it. Try this W3C

    the front page looks fine, but you'll want to change your file extension for it to .html, the page itself has a .htm extension

    I dont like flash, and i dont see the flash, also the background music does not play on Mozilla FireFox, if it is part of the flash, then my bad, if it is not, it still wont play.

    I dont see any GIF's, so i have no clue what you are talking about.

    The gif on the front page works for me. I'm not really into the cool mouseover thing and if your website plays music without a button/link to stop it, you will make people very irritated...okay. me, if I hear it, which I don't.

    :p

    Music doesn't belong on a web-site. Most people already have some form of sound (be it a TV/Radio/mp3) playing whilst surfing the net, they don't need that rudely interrupted via web-sites.

    I have admuncher strip embeded sounds/music from sites which just leaves flash sites with music but most let me turn it off, yours didnt.

    you also have to remember that most people not on broadband dont apprecieate downloading useless chaff that some kid thought would be cool.

    I doubt Cartoon Network woudl be too happy with you using their imagery on your site either...

    All that aside your best way to learn is to read the w3c guidlines and figure it out on your own and only asking for help when you really cant figure it out.

    Maybe it's just me, but the image at the top of the page, along with the bar and "now playing" are not centered on the page. Using Firefox, it's noticeable enough to bother me... kinda like a picture hanging crooked on a wall.
