Where do you get those things that HTML tutorial sites use to post the HTML in??? There is some kind of application that lets these sites post html codes without the site reading it, this enables the viewers to see the codes correctly and copy and paste them... What is this application and can I get it???

I have the latest version of Dreamweaver CS4. It's very good and useful. I use it sometimes to make .js code then to upload it to my own server then link it to yola with html for use in my yola site!

Next step is to create a full wesbsite in it. It is used by the webmasters of the huge website's such as myspace, facebook, and I would say Google use it too.

do you mean the things with scroll bars?. - Christo or another member of satff used 1 here the other day. Maybe they will know.

I would like to know how can you stop browsers reading or messing with javascript the <!-- --> seems to do the trick for html but javascript always gets messed up.

Yeah Duke, the scroll bar things or the ones without the bars is fine... Oh ok, yeah I tried the <!-- --> things and my information always seems to disappear, I'm going to try it once more to see if I missed something the first go round... Thanks any thing you could find would be much appreciated...

I'm going to let you guys into one of my secrets. I use this really cool site. It converts your HTML code, therefore allowing you to post the code on GS and your site.

http://www.punky.co.za/convert.php

Simply delete the text that is currently in the text box, add in your HTML code and click on "encode". Your code will be converted and you can now add this converted code to GS or your site.

I thought I posted this already but... The very first box on this tutorial page (the yellow one) is what I'm looking for not the ones below it... What did they use to accomplish this?

GS is really quite diffcult to explain the processes
What I did was copied the appropriate code and wrapped it so that you can copy it for use.

Where I've put (This is where you add your code) is literally where you would type the code to display it effectively on GS with this gizmo.

Below it was a bit of a gaff as the text wasn't long enough to invoke the scroll bars. I was doing this as an illustration. :(
I think that you would understand this though?

the first five lines are the needed functional code

You obviously missed Kershnee's great tip, Peter !

&lt;!-- HTML Codes by Quackit.com --&gt;
&lt;div style=&quot;height:120px;width:250px;font:16px/26px Georgia, Garamond, Serif;overflow:scroll;&quot;&gt;
As you can see, once there&#039;s enough text in this box, the box will grow scroll bars... that&#039;s why we call it a scroll box! You could also place an image into the scroll box.
&lt;/div&gt;
&lt;p style=&quot;font-family:verdana,arial,sans-serif;font-size:10px;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;<a href='http://www.quackit.com/html/codes/html_scroll_box.cfm&quot;&gt;HTML'>http://www.quackit.com/html/codes/html_scroll_box.cfm&quot;&gt;HTML</a> scrollbox&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
