Well, you don't even need to ask! If you look on your browser, it might have an editing tool. If you use firefox (as an example) you would use firebug to view the site's source code and get ideas on how the page was designed.

I did i did, honest but i couldn't put it together properly, nevermind.

Do you understand how to use your editing tools? Which tool are you using? Do you have any experience with web design?

I use firebug

okay, and do you understand how to code/read html and css?

Abosolutly i just didn't recogonise the behaviour of it. Which is where i needed the guidance.

Well examine this div tag that they have more closely: newsspec_4516

The "web" they have created is using javascript, that maybe the part you may not understand. Do you know javascript?

Okay, but do you understand how the page is built? Based off of the example/link i provided?

If you need help with the coding, feel free to post a question in the javascript forum so daniwebsters can help you fix your code and assist you deeply.

Do you have any more questions?
