    Hi all,

    I have a banner to interchange with another site. How do I make my URL (or for that matter, any other text or image in the banner) be an active clickable link and to remain so when I make the whole works a gif? Thanks, Frank

    I'm not 100% sure I understand your question, but here is the answer to what I think. To have a .gif as a link it would look something like this: <a href="Link URL">
    <img border="0" src="Your.gif" width="whatever" height="whatever">

    If this is to go on another site, then the full path to yor .gif will be required. Did I make sense?

    Thanks Bill,

    I guess I was not clear. What you give me is what I would put in my html. My problem is another one. I have to incorporate my URL (<a href="mysite.com">) as the text of a banner that I am sending to someone else to put on his site. The banner will be a gif with my URL in it. I want the URL to be clickable. Is that any clearer.

    Let's see. If you are asking a way to actually "load" your link into a .gif, I know of no way. But, if they could use the code I posted and in the src="your.gif" use "http://your_web-hosting_site.your.gif" . For example, I have a gif called 'doggie.gif' loaded on my server. If you want to see it, you can go to: http://home.comcast.net/~b.cherry/doggie.gif .

    In this example, you could load your banner.gif on your server then give them the code posted with the full path to the .gif. Does that make sense?
