<p id='msg'><strong>Success:</strong> Changes have been saved!</p>
kinda like how wordpress tells you that a change has occurred and then it fades away and dissapears. i think facebook does this too if you don't click close on messages that appear like after you add a friend?
if i can't get the fade out effect i'd be happy to just make it disappear after say 3 seconds.
i don't know how to use jquery but i've been using the other languages for about 10 years
