--For example: If I wanted someone named John to type their name in, I'd want the page's marquee to display "Welcome to my site, John!"
-I'm new, so I would definitely appreciate any help or comments. Thanks! :thumbsup:

You're welcome. :D
Doesn't that create a <marquee> tag? There are better ways of doing that, as marquee is depreciated ;)

Any other ways would be helpful as well, but until then I'll just stick with Fred's way. :D Go fred
