Web - HTML text box question

Bryan Azorsky 8 years ago updated by icahill (Administrator) 8 years ago 1
I'm looking for help in creating a text box that contains too much text to fit in the box, so I need it to be able to scroll.

I'm building this off of the Rat Pack code that Dustin led on Nov 1st.

I've created a html document, about2.html

FIRST TITLE HERE
Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vestibulum sed leo nisi, eget aliquet libero. Pellentesque at diam vel elit ultricies mollis.

Donec volutpat tempus varius. Phasellus mauris neque, rutrum eu tempus eu, venenatis tincidunt urna.

Nulla nec nibh vitae leo varius porta. Sed mattis tristique nisl, ut feugiat turpis iaculis porttitor. Fusce tincidunt dui quis velit auctor non euismod enim rhoncus.

Fusce a neque nisi, nec ultrices nunc.
Phasellus scelerisque felis nec tellus adipiscing nec sollicitudin nunc feugiat. Nunc luctus velit sodales erat euismod in mattis tellus eleifend. Proin eget risus lacus. Quisque arcu lorem, imperdiet eu tempor sit amet, congue a odio.
I'm placing it in the object class for the first image position from the class, and I haven't changed the name as you will notice.





It's not working the way I want, I can't see the text appear. I think I'm going about this the wrong way.
Is your html formatted or is it just straight text like you have above?

In order for an html file to appear in a web tag it needs to be formatted. here is a sample:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>I Love HTML</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
</head>
<body>
Everything displayed on your page will be in here.
</body>
</html>
