If you choose to use the
"newbie" page, do not worry about it. The code you need is all there
for you. You will only need to write your message to Dad. (Instructions
are provided for you in the ZIP folder. Just look for the file in the folder
called "newbie.txt". It will tell you all you need to know to make a nice
web page for Dad.)

Greetings and Helloes!
The 5 Star Dad web set or background set, had been created
with the needs of the "newbie" and the "oldbie" in mind. I did this
so anyone, regardless of HTML knowledge could do a simple, nice page
for their own, or someone else's father. It can be used for Father's Day,
birthday, or any special occasion where you want to show a dad your appreciation.
To see a screen shot of the entire set without "SAMPLE"
written on it, click here. A new window will open for you, but it may take a
while to load, as it is ONE image and not several individual ones.
For the "newbie", all you need to do is write whatever you
want to say to Dad in this space. You can use "Notepad" in your computer
or any HTML program you might have. Full instructions are in a text file
in the ZIP file.
You will need to download the ZIP file in order to get graphics
that do not say "sample" on them. I am forced to do this as people steal
my bandwidth if I do not. (Yes, I know other sets are available on my
site that do not say "SAMPLE" all over them. I am in the process of re-doing
my site so that all images will say "SAMPLE" over them, but it is a BIG
job and will take a long time) .
For the "oldbie", this set includes several buttons in gif
format that are ready to use. There is also a blank button in PSD format
for you to create whatever buttons you may need. (Yes, PSD works in Paint
Shop Pro, PhotoShop, PhotoImpact, and a lot of other programs)
The font I used is called "Algerian". It came with one of my computer
programs, but I do not know which one. You are free to use the web
set to create whatever page you would like for dad, as long as the page
can be viewed by anyone of any age and/or has no hateful material on it
or linked to it.
If you know HTML and want to tinker with it and create your own web page using
this set, that is OK, too. Just be sure to link to my online store. The
link info is below. You can change it if you like, as long as it links to
The background is designed to be used in CSS style sheet
code. I have designed this set with the needs of DAD in mind. The set is meant to
load as fast as possible on nearly any computer no matter how slow the
modem. This is to help prevent "newbies" from accidently crashing Dad's
You will need an UNzipping program to read the instructions
and/or get your graphics. If you do not already have one, you can
use a free demo for a few days. You can get the demo and instructions to
use it at:

This set is meant to compliment items I sell to support
this site and its cost. It IS linkware. You must link to my AmeriWear online mini-mall
The link code can be very small, as we really do not need for
it to glare at Dad when he sees it, do we? Here is an example of how the
code will look on the newbie page:
Graphics by AmeriYank's Graphics Farm.
T-shirts, caps, and more with the "5 Star Dad" image available at AmeriWear. Great gift for Father's Day, birthday,
or other special occasion.
Now that isn't
so bad, is it? It can be at the very bottom of the page, out of the way
so no one notices. And, yes, of course you can buy Dad a hat, cap, or license
plate frame that matches the colors here by visiting AmeriWear. Shirts are designed
in a similar way, but not exactly, because, well, it just didn't look
good as seen here, so I changed the design a teensy little bit.
Below is a sample of the buttons that go with the set:
if you like, you can use the button
below to link to AmeriWear:
