do a magic little thing called research. you cant place a chat room in an html document without using some specialized server software and a java applet for a client. see google.com for all the info.

I''d suggest doing some research into Server-Client programming. Take some java tutorials at java.sun.com and then learn about applets & JSP & Servlets.

if you''re interested in non-web based chat technology look into C++ sockets (winsock API is a good start)

but before any of that look for information about Server-Client architecture. There''s some fundimental conceptual info you seem to be missing.

between google, java.sun.com, the Articles & Resources section on this site, and howthingswork.com you should have all the info you need to understand how to write a chat application or a message board in a quick 1-3 month timeframe

You can make one in Shockwave easily. Get a copy of Director (download the trial version from Macromedia if you like.) I think that a simple chatroom is included in example files, if not then there''s bound to be examples on the web, try http://www.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/director/ first. It''ll be a bit of a pain to get around the ''lingo'' programming language to make anything too specialised, but it''s pretty straightforward.
