    I want to make a web page that is like a command prompt. It would be all black with green text. The green text would be written to the screen like it was being typed (You have a string of text and every half second u add another character or something like that). Then after it finishes writing whatever it has to say to the screen it goes to the next line down and lets you type in your command. What would be the best/easiest way of making this site?

    might be easier to make that in flash.

    i can think of a way of doing it in html but it would take a lot of code.

    i'll see what i can come up with.

    Energizze, I was thinking along the same lines. Howere, the only problem is that writing comma delimeted content can be a royal pain.

    true.

    i'm sure there's a way of seperating each character in javascript. but that was just a quick script.

    Thanks a bundle guys that pretty much worked great. I fixed it so you don't have to separate each character with a comma. And is there a way to replace the typing cursor with a green box, kinda like what you might see in the matrix?

    Well you could insert something like:
    Code:
    <font style="background-color:green; padding:2px">&amp;nbsp;</font>
    That should make a big green cursor-like thing.

    But you can't put that in a input box can you?

    no, that just puts a background colour on some text.
