Close button script.

<a href="javascript:window.close();"><img src="images/but_close.gif" border="0" width="74" height="18" vspace="10" alt="CLOSE"></a>

Some browsers will close only window if it was open as pop-up.

Show text inside search box.

<input onfocus="this.value=''" type="text" value="some text" />
<input onfocus="this.select()" type="text" value="some text" />

This gives the user to amend text that they have put in, without having to rewrite it completely if they go back to the box.

Div left – Div Right.

<div align=”center”>
<div style=”width:70%; float:left;”>
some text on the right

</div>
<div style=”width:29%; float:right;”>

some text on the left

</div>

Advise it to keep it less then 100%  total width.

Frame Kill
Copy this code and paste it between the <head> and </head> tags of your page (after “title”)

  •  

      <SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript"> 
  • top.location=self.document.location;

    •  
        <!--
        if (top.frames.length!=0)
        // -->
    • </SCRIPT>

     

This code makes your Web page stay in its own full screen window.
