    The Webmaster-Tribune runs an ad for moreover.com, which offers code to run news headlines on your site. I downloaded the code, but don't know how to implement it. They say just add code to page where you want headlines to appear, but obviously there's more to it because if I just "select all" on the code and copy to my page, I just get the code itself on the page, not the headlines. So I must have to select the part that gets pasted on the page, but what part? Has anyone used this who can help?

    Usually, just put the code into your text editor, where you want to headlines to go. I've used ISyndicate before, but never Moreover.com. If you're using a WYSIWYG editor, you will want to open the HTML inspector, or open the page's code in TextPad, or WordPad.

    Thanks to DynaMike for response. I understand how to paste the code into my HTML source code for the desired page. But it must be that you are to paste only a PART of the code, because when I paste everything moreover.com gives me, again, I just get the code itself displayed in the WYYSIWYG view of the page. Has anybody else used the moreover.com code who can help? Thanks a ton.

    Why don't you put the code here to let me see it? That would help. I've never had this problem with ISyndicate. I'm sure it's something really simple that you're just overlooking. A fresh set of eyes should help out.

    That is how it is pasted on your site??? If that is the case it may be part of the problem as your spacing it very off with improper line returns. I know you can use javascript without line returns but you need to separate each statement with a semi-colon.
    Also you have double qoutes within double quote strings. I.E. "<table border="1">" which should be "<table border='1'>"

    I would try copying the code again and retaining the formatting that MoreOver provides for it to work properly. If it still doesn't work send an email to their customer support and ask that they help you.

    Try only using only the following on your page and not anything else:

    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript"
    SRC="http://www.moreover.com/cgi-local/page?index_useducation+js"></SCRIPT>

    This was all that I did when I imported the MoreOver snippet on our PPSV Headline News Page just recently.

    I think that you just imported too much - Give this a try
