    Question Creating fake error messages

    I've been trying to work out if there is some way that I can display a page of 'fake error warnings' - a similar effect to that shown at:

    http://www.iarchitect.com/errormsg.htm

    (yes, I know that the ones on the above pages are images...but I don't have the graphics software to make something similar).

    If there isn't some coding that I could use, maybe someone knows an online graphics generator that could do this? I've spent about 4 hours searching for one......

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    Many thanks for the reply, X_goose. Unfortunately, this will not help in this case, because I want to actually *make* a fake error message, not copy a real one.

    Thanks to all who've replied so far....and yes, I have paint. But I don't want to use an 'image' if I can get an *easy* script to create pop-up warnings from embedded links.

    I'll use graphics if there is no other way around it.

    Ta, muchly...

    That was a joke. I thought your zipping up that small file was intended to be funny (it was). Sorry.

    Thanks for all the help. I have now created the page:

    http://warriorlibrarian.com/ROFL/opac.html

    It's probably not funny to anyone except librarians...but it was a great learning experience for me!

    I ended up using the graphics from the other page, and editing them in ArcSoft Photostudio 2000, just in case anyone was wondering ....
