into parameters named text x , where x is the number of the line in the credit roll.
Because of the length of the cast list, parameters named text1 through text19 already
have been created for you and stored in a separate file in the tutorial.07\tutorial folder.
The CreditRoll applet also supports a parameter named url that adds a link to the
credit roll, opening a Web page when a user clicks the applet window. Maxine suggests

Royal Wedding . The URL of the Web page is .
You'll add parameters for the credit roll text and the URL to the embedded applet now.
To add the scrolling text and URL:

folder included with your Data Files and copy the parameter text. Close the file.
2. Return to the jumbo.htm file in your text editor and paste the copied parameter
text directly below the <param> tag for the repeat parameter.
3. Add the following parameter to set the URL associated with the CreditRoll applet:
<param name=”url” value=”” / >
