25.  Insert another background as before.  Use the cross-bg1.jpg and scroll this one UP!  Refer to step #10 for the image but make sure to scroll it up.

This makes a total of eight positioned containers, each one should be all the way over at the left margin.

26.  Next we will insert the message area.  Set all of the margins as shown in the image below.  When that is done you will click on this icon Insert picture icon and insert the image named crossover-main.jpg.  While that box is open, notice it gives you the option to set margins around the image.  Set these all to 10.  If you have already clicked and missed that option box, click on the main image and delete it then go and redo it.

Example

27.  All that is left to do is to insert sound, a ticker and the loading message.  Try to keep your loading message time down below 2.0.  To learn how to add in a background graphic in your loading message, please go to the main index and refer to the Scrippy Tips section.
