Do you read Qing dynasty era Chinese characters? Read these, pls!

This is a calligraphy banner with a colophon on a Chinese ink landscape painting on silk. I don't know the date, but I'm assuming it's Qing. The painting is a vertical scroll - mountain, houses, river beneath - with two or three sets of scene-setting characters. What does this say? Any date? Thanks!

Scroll Follow Box

I am a novice at html, but I have found code that I've used to create placeholders for images on the right side of my page that don't move when I scroll down. I want to hyperlink each of five images in that scroll follow box to a different audio file. Each audio file corresponds to one of five explanations grouped together on the left side of the page. There are dozens of five explanation groupings and the follow box helps users remember what the terms mean by clicking a close by box when they need to. I am using Serif WebX6 to build the website. And I've been referring to a book I have on .html. I found lots of code that uses .css or javascript, but I have no training with these, and when I pasted them in, the website didn't accept or run them. I do have a better understanding of .html though. And I have been able to move the box I made around, and create placeholders for my images, but no images. [more inside]

Make these websites usable again please

Lots of websites have headers/footers that block text below them, but when you hit page down, they act as if the entire page was visible and go too far. The headers are often blog headers, the footers are often "share this" kind of footers. How do I make PageUp/PageDown work properly? This is a problem for both Firefox and Chrome, but I use Firefox mostly, in Windows. [more inside]

What's this handwritten, scroll font?

What is this font? I'm trying to match the cute, handwritten scroll feeling of "just add ice." I'm happy to find a typeface either to buy or a free download. OpenType preferred. My results from Identifont weren't close.

How to get scrollwheel-clicking to open links in a new tab in Firefox?

The scrollwheel-click has suddenly stopped working in Firefox. I don't recall making any changes in preferences, but all of a sudden, what used to open up links in new tabs, no longer does so. Instead wheel-clicking on a link does nothing. Any idea how to fix this problem? I feel like I'm browsing with one less finger! (Mac OSX.4.11, Firefox 2.0.0.11, Safari is unaffected by the problem.)

stop scrolling, damn ye!

Javascript / Prototype problem: I've written a function that inserts new content in a div whenever you click on a link in that same div. It works, but with the added "feature" of scrolling to the top of the page after the new content has been added. I don't want it to do this. How do I stop it? Here's the page. (Scroll down to see the link.) [more inside]
