I'm try to make text "pulse" in DW5 like a beating heart. I've been trying to do it in Flash to no avail so far. Can someone tell me what I SHOULD be doing as obviously what I'm doing now is WRONG?

Do you have an example of the effect you'd like you can show us?

Not really, it's just a "twinkle in my eye" right now.

I want the text "Coming This December" to pulse or beat like a heart.I've never seen it before so I can't even give you an example.

Use photoshop and create a gif. There's lots of tutorials out there on how to do it. Here's one:

Another option is to to use some bleeding edge CSS.

That's what I thought as well.

Some of this stuff just amazes me.
You have all these new opportunities with CSS, so how can you combine them to make crazy stuff? :)

Yes, it's freakin' awesome :)
Use now what you can use and serve fallback solutions (plain and simple) for the old and less capable browsers.

All sound like very good ideas. I think I'll try the animated GIF route first, it seems like it would be the easiest. Besides, I've never used them and I should at least know how to use them.

Thanks guys!
