    Talking Myspace .CSS code

    I am new .CSS and was wondering if its possible to put a code on a page so when the webpage loads flames would appear then fade, or the page would open up like a transition. myspace is all .CSS and doesnt't allow java scropt i'm pretty sure. If anyone could help I would appreciate it!!

    Also, is there a way to put a player like the windows media player on a web page using .css so it spins like that kaleidoscope visualization to the music??

    Yeah, that won't fly with CSS.

    CSS is a design language, and a design language alone. It can't provide any fading or effects to your page, just design. However, it can do some pretty powerful stuff. Learn a bit about CSS: http://www.w3schools.com/css/. Seriously, it's pretty cool, and it might help you design a MySpace layout if you use it properly.

    As for the flames... sorry man, think you're out of luck. MySpace is pretty strict, and for darn good reason. Can you imagine some of the things people would do if JavaScript were allowed? *shudder*

    PS, as for the media player thing, their might be a way to do it. I'll be happy to look in to it for you, but don't count on it being something you can use on MySpace.

    True, but a) wouldn't the edges/colors look pretty bad, and b) wouldn't it look a whole lot better with a partial alpha channel? You can't really do an animated GIF for something like that unless you know what color the flames would be fading over, and that would place a big rectangle underneath where they were.

    Now MNG and APNG on the other hand... those might work. Too bad there is literally next to no support for them in web browsers (or tools to create them).

    For the Windows Media Player thing... does not appear that it's possible. Try adding the "ShowDisplay" parameter (set to "true") to your "object" tag (or the "ShowDisplay" attribute to your "embed" tag). I sincerely doubt that this will work however.

    Good luck!
