    hi everyone,
    i have a website. On the bottom there is something like a sitemap.
    In this sitemap i added a new link ( to a pdf file ). That new link is
    very important.
    So i want the user when he visits my site to notice it. So i thought
    of putting a gif image
    next to the link that flashes "new" and also to put a sentence at the
    top right corner of the
    page that slides from right to left inside a 300px width box.
    Do you have any other idea of how can i make the user notice the new
    link in a nice and discreet way?
    Any idea would be helpful.
    Thank you.

    Wow that sounds horrible! the marquee tag will give you the scrolling text
    and the blink tag will save you a gif! *blurgh* Sorry I was just sick ;-)
    If you want somebody to notice a link make it a nice bold colour. It's
    called an action button see here:
    Hope that helps you.

    Ahhh, blinking drives me crazy. Very old fashioned and home-made and
    it's common for many designers to steer their clients away from *just
    about* anything that moves or blinks.
    It would be helpful if you'd provide a link to the page. We have no idea
    what it looks like so it's hard to give suggestions without the visual.

    Yes you are right. Maybe an action button is something that should
    work. Although the design of the site is not that good still this is a
    good option.
    The site is down these days, there is no link. I am not the one that
    is developing the site so i don't know what is wrong with their
    server(they host it), but he asked me if i had any idea of how to make
    the link noticeable.
    i'll try with the action button. I think i have an idea from the link
    that you provided.
    Thank you.
