Use Style Sheets to Create Floating Text

Use Cascading Style Sheets to create a floating text paragraph. First, add the <STLYE> attribute in the document's <HEAD> section:

 
<STYLE TYPE="text/css"> 
<!-- TEXTAREA 
{ position:absolute; top:60; left: 25; width:200; height:100; font: 8pt
Verdana; background:Ivory; margin:5px; border:none; } 
--> </STYLE> 
</HEAD> 
<BODY>
Now, add the content you want to display in the window:
 
<TEXTAREA WRAP="virtual"> Visit my new Web site at: http://www.myWebsite.com 
Let us know what you think! 
</TEXTAREA> 
</BODY> 
</HTML>
You now have a floating text paragraph complete with scroll bars.

UPDATED 6/14/00: Reader Eben Freeman pointed out that this tip does not explain how to extract the posted XML on the server. He offered this solution:

 
doc = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
doc.load(Request)
