Myspace code

My daughter is involved with Myspace and loves working on her page.  I hope she takes an inerest in programming.  I need to know what kind of code Myspace uses, Flash or whatever.  Also, I need to know if there is any Teen level of tutorials or code learning type sites out there that you would reccomend.  She really wants to be able to do stuff on her site that others cant. Such as moving text in the comments she leaves or other cool stuff like that.  Any cut and paste type tricks you guys might have that are cool would be great.

Firstly, she'll need to learn HTML. HTML is the main language of web pages, and is very simple to use. Probably the best tutorial on HTML is:

   http://www.w3schools.com/html/

You say that she wants to be able to do some cool effects, moving text, etc, etc; JavaScript would be best for this:

   http://www.w3schools.com/js/

JavaScript is slightly more advanced than HTML; it envolves functions, variables, etc -- and may take some time to get the hang of; a Good book on JavaScript is always nice to have.

For some extra nice customizations, for when she gets comfortable with HTML at least, would be implementing some CSS into her site:

   http://www.w3schools.com/css/

I taught myself the above languages (and more) when I was between 12 and 14 years old ... so, that just goes to show that it can't all be too tough :-)

Best of luck with it.

MySpace uses mostly CSS and some javascript to change the pages.

She can tweak this code and Post this in one of her comment areas ( Music, Movies etc.)
