    good luck cashing a check you downloaded from email and printed out on your laserjet printer on a 8"-11" sheet of paper.
    I came up with a cool phrase to put down here, but i forgot it...

    do you want cash or credit card? And what's your email? Can I just send my credit card over email? and how do I get that in there? Is there a slot on my computer to stick it in? this one hole is a little big... but it'll work

    Take your credit card, turn it sideways, and stick it in your toaster. Toast on HIGH. Your credit card will be instantly transported to me.
    WARNING: You may have to live with the bi-products of telportation; a horrible smell and a ruined toaster.

    That would be fine, just don't forget your address, full name, and that 3 digit code on the back of your card. Oh, and you better include your mother's maiden name, just in case.

    Ok, what's that 'shortcut icon' supposed to be? I know some html, but uhh... that doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.

    It's probably because it's not HTML, it's XHTML. Most things are just like in good old HTML but this is not.

    About the code from Eibro.

    It's ok, but remember to put it, in the head tag, after all the meta statements.

    More info can be found here:

    Good luck.
