    If you take a look at the source, you'll see this:

    <APPLET archive="AnLake.jar" code="AnLake.class" width="350" height="386">

    It's just an Java-applet. To make one yourself, you'll have to program one or get one from an Applet site (or from a friend).

    Here are two resources for the type of 'Lake/Water' applets that you are looking for...

    Lake applets tips and tutorials... http://www.viperspit.com/laketips.html

    Water drops on water... http://www.anfyteam.com/indexen.html

    Always take into account the time it takes for your page to load when you use these applets - I only connect at 26.4k so having the lake graphic on the 'CityBarGuide' took the website almost 45 seconds to load on my PC!

    FYI: westmich
    - I always check URLs that I post here to see if they are still active and go where they are supposed to go. My system is 'quirky' at times so I always figure if it is ok with mine, it 'should' be ok with others...but that I guess is not always the case!

    When you go to this particular site and you want to exit, there are 2 other windows that you have to close - could that be the problem?

    Sorry if I posted a site that caused you problems...

    by the way you can do this by making a quicktime movie which is just an image (like people use flash just to make images, cos they resize in the browserwindow) and have a mask effect over it, consult the quicktime site on how to do it
    www.quicktime.com

    much easier than making an appelet!!

    This 'Wavy Lake Effect' is much closer in style to the one on the website that you posted...(I was looking for a completely different type of script and found this one!)

    You can find the script used here: Website Resources and the graphic is great!

    'Credit is Due' because this applet, which takes any .gif or .jpg and puts it behind a virtual lake, was made by David Griffith. The download and instructions can be found at his website David Griffin Home

    Now you can choose the one that works the best...
