Hi Gang, Nothing important. I'm trying to get one of those "typing" style 404s to work. This one is a little different, since I'm trying to get a "good Bob" / "bad Bob" repartee going on between the two textareas. I swiped the basic script from elsewhere and managed to scramble and break it all to heck. The content intended for the bottom textarea should not be appearing in the top one. http://www.fangsnclaws.com/Testing/a404.html Can someone straighten me out here? Thanks, RonL.
