HELP...
How do you make text highlighted(for lack of a better term). Take your mouse and scroll over some text on a webpage, notice how the text gets blocked off... is there a way i can get the text on my page to look like that permanantly. is there a way? if so what would be the code.

You mean giving some words a different color ??

<font color="#00FFFF">this is another color permanently</font>

I think the correct term for this is "inverted". You can do this like that:

<TABLE><TR><TD BGCOLOR="blue"><FONT COLOR="white">Your text goes here</FONT></TD></TR></TABLE>

However this won't work with all browsers, especially not with older ones.

You could also use Cascading Style Sheets... here is the sample code

This has no background <A STYLE="bgcolor:red">This has a red background</A> nor does this...

This works in all 4.x browsers and may work in 3.x... Thought I would let you know.
