    What im trying to do is this ~
    Have a semi-transparent box which scrolls down with the page the user scrolls down the homepage, but, this semi-transparent box would also have to grab some text from a another site to display on it.

    E.g. For my shoutcast server, the "now playing" song would be shown on my site.]

    I cant figure out how to do it.. =\

    What's "advanced HTML"? I don't see anything advanced or high tech with HTML. Maybe it's just me.

    tudorchad:
    It's just your POV. For those who are just starting to learn HTML, there is indeed advanced parts of it.

    It's more PHP / ASP than HTML, especially if / when the data is changing.

    I think what he may mean is that it's not really an HTML solution. You'll use JavaScript, CSS, and a server-side language to accomplish that. It's definitely not simple, but the HTML part of it is.

    Wildfire ...

    Show us exactly what text you're trying to "scrape",
    the URL and the text you want to grab.
