Hi there,

Probably really simple.
What I want to do is have my webpage read a line of text from a text file and enter it into the relevant position.

IE - http://text-from-file-goes-here/test/index.html

Any help appreciated.

Thanks guys.

What scripting languages do you have at your disposal?  ASP, PHP, etc?

I can use either.
All it needs to do is load an external text fle (which is updated every few minutes) into a webpage so that when a user looks at the page it appears as a complete link that they can click on.

I have a little experience with PHP, but not much with ASP.
