    Red face Floating Balloons Javascript Code Help

    Hi everyone,

    I hope that I am in the right forum because I read
    that Java and Java Script are 2 different things.

    Anyway, there is this floating balloon code
    that I have already got to work perfectly
    just like the website mentions.

    I got the script from the website at the link below:
    Dynamic Drive DHTML Scripts- Floating images script

    The only problem is that the balloons are floating all over the page
    and blocking text on the website page which that is what is
    supposed to happen anyway.

    What I want to do is take this same code and make the balloons
    only float on the left and right hand side of the website page
    and not over top of the website page. If I can get the
    balloons to only float over my background image, I will
    be so happy with that.

    The website page is designed in HTML and CSS.
    Can anyone please help me?

    Thanks so much,
    Website Designer Girl

    Sorry, you do seem to be in the wrong place. Way, way back Netscape licensed the "Java" buzzword and we're left with the confusion left by the fact there are two totally different languages.

    Google should lead you to a JavaScript forum. Once there you would be advised to construct a small example page (html, css and code in one small document) and explain both desired and actual result.

    Thanks so much for your help and I will do that. The code is on the website page in my post, so hopefully they would
    only need that page I assume. Why would Netscape license that word? Did they invent Java? What is Java used for?

    I moved this thread to the "Other Programming Languages" forum.

    Most likely, they'll want to see a small example that demonstrates only the problem, without any extra content. This is also known as an SSCCE.
