Another way to take things offered on the web that are "open source" (that is "gadgets" or images" offered to the public for open use - and free of charge) is the way that I tried to describe to you in my last email...
There are many sites that have created HTML code that you simply copy and paste into your own blog.
For example, on the following web page
users are given the option to use a clock that that website has created as "open source". It gives good instructions on how to do this... and, frankly, I think those instructions are better than any I could try to type here, so I won't try to elaborate.
But, as you can see, if you click on their link that says something like "get html code" - you will arrive at a new page that gives you two options. TO be honest, I'm not sure what the difference between the two options are - but I would just try to copy the first first, since that seems to be the most common choice.
OKay, I just paused for a minute to try it out myself, and yes, the first option is the better choice for "blogger," this host site that I use....
All I did to post this clock was to cut and paste the entire HTML code from that page into the box on my blog site where I'd normally type and upload the texts for a new post.
As you can see by this example, you can add text directly next to these embedded free source gadgets... And then voila, What you see is What you get (WYSIWYG)...
Hope this works for you guys!
