Inserts Top Border Script
Prompts for Top Border Image
How to use it: This button will insert a script which makes top borders more useful. Until now, I've only shown examples of Left borders in stationery. As you might imagine, other possibilities exist - the most popular of which is the top border.
You could simply use the Border (Top) option on the Right-Click Menu, and that will work. Unfortunately, top borders created in that manner have some limitations. If you write a long message on such stationery, as the reader scrolls through the message, the border image scrolls away and you can no longer see it. That's no good - you spent all this time making your stationery you want to make sure that people can see it.
Now you might consider using the Watermark option on the Right-Click Menu to hold the image in place. Again, that will work because it does keep the image in place so that it is always visible. But this method also has drawbacks. When you do this, although the image stays in place, as the reader scrolls through your message, the text scrolls over the border image. This is no good because the text becomes hard to read, the image gets obscured and the whole thing just looks sloppy.
The challenge, therefore, is to make a top border image that remains in place as you scroll through the message, and to make the text go under the image as you scroll. That's where this toolbar button comes in. This script causes your top border to remain in place as you scroll through a message, and the text scrolls under the image. As well, it also causes the border image to automatically proportionally resize itself to fit the size of the window.
When you click this button, you will be prompted for the image to use as the top border. There are a couple of things you need to be aware of to use this effectively. For starters, the top border image is not loaded by the <body background="image"> tag that you are used to seeing. For this script to work, the border image is instead loaded by a regular <img> tag. If you were to load your border into the <body> tag then this script won't actually do anything.
Simply because of the way this script works, you can not compose your background image so that the background and the border are only one image. For this script to work, the background (if any) and the border must be separate images. The background itself is loaded the regular way with the <body> tag (see the example).
