I have a clock on the top.  The time is on the left side.  I want to center it,  or make the form smaller, or not to have the form.

If you need my script, or form, I will post them here.

Thank you

Just make the boder of the input 0 so you wont see it.

<input type="text" name="clock" style="border:0">

This way all you see is the clock.

Hope this helps...

Here you go.  Is this what your looking for...

Just replace the body code in your upper_frame.htm file with this...

<BODY leftMargin=0 topMargin=0 onload=writeTime() MARGINHEIGHT="0"
<form name="the_form">
<TABLE width="60%" border="0" bgColor=#ffffff height="19">
    <TD vAlign=top align=middle width="35%">
      <p style="word-spacing: 0; margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0">
      <A href="" target=_top><B><FONT
      face=Arial color=#544c4c size=4></FONT></B></A></p>
    <TD vAlign=top align=middle width="40%"><FONT face=Arial
      color=#000000 size=2>
            document.write( dayName[now.getDay()] + " ,  " + monName[now.getMonth()] +"  " + now.getDate() + "  " + now.getFullYear())
        <p style="word-spacing: 0; margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0"><INPUT
name=the_text size="8" style="border:0"></FONT></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></form></center></BODY>

I added a size to the form so the time would look nicer.
