How to leave
a Graphic in a Guest-book
First upload graphic into your WebSite files.
After you upload the graphic into your WebSite files, click on it in your File Manager to display it. Make note of its Address in the area on the top of your screen that contains the URL. Copy and paste that address into a text file in any Word Processing Program.
You can also make a note of it's height and width by right clicking on the graphic and then click on "properties" (those on AOL may not have this option).
By adding the address into your word processor, you can add all of the HTML needed to leave a gift in a

It's much easier this way than typing it all the time and risk making an error. When you decide to leave a different gift- all you have to do is change the name and address part of your graphic to the new one.
Most free servers will not allow remote linking. Geocities will not allow you to post a graphic in a guestbook but I don't know about other servers. Since I have my own domain at Geocities, I am able to post graphics in
guest-book's. If you want a reliable and inexpensive server for your own domain I would suggest you try *Bravenet* or *Geocities* .

You can combine these two codes for
<marquee scrollamount="400" scrolldelay="500">
Your Text </marquee>
Change the numbers to get desired effect.
Following is an example of the code to place in a guestbook:
