"How to Add Text to the Status Bar"

How do I add the "text in the status bar"?

Had to go and search a little for the answer to this question. I added it to this page so you can see it. Oh, the "status bar" is near the bottom of the browser and on the left side. I put "Welcome to my Tips Page"

1) Copy the code below

2) Near the top of the page put the cursor

3) Go to 'insert' then 'html markup'

4) Paste the code

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">

// ***********************************************
// URL:
// Use the script, just leave this message intact.
// Download your FREE CGI/Perl Scripts today!
// ( )
// ***********************************************
status_text();function status_text()
{window.status="Type your text here";setTimeout("status_text()",1);}


5) You will want to personalize the text for your own page!!

Before you add the code to your page make sure you do a test page!!

If you want the text to scroll then click here for the code.
