    IOW, you want someone to find a free script for you and to know what looks good to you so that you don't have to??

    My crystal ball is being serviced right, so how about you at least show us an example of 'what looks good' please

    Well I have used this: http://countdownjs.org/.
    Free but you have to be handy at CSS.

    Have a look at http://codegeekz.com/jquery-countdown-timer-plugins/.

    You have to understand the approach to adding code, scripts and HTML tags into Xara application Placeholders, so not for the faint-hearted.

    Mike, I was in a brazen mood - don't take my humor personally, I've helped you out many times before haven't I
    My point was, your original post didn't give us much to go on but there were several free candidates in the google results I posted. Your second post made it even harder because you then told us only one looked any good. You could have linked to that one so we'd know what looks good to your eyes.
    I think giving more information about what you are looking for by way of an example helps us help you, otherwise it's just random?

    Well I did search on google and they were all cheap tacky looking other than one I saw which was at a cost ...... You have helped me out more times than I can remember
    and I'm sure you didn't mean to be unhelpful ..... just Brazen,.... lol...... anyway I accept your apologies ..... lol .....(joking).
    Trouble is Steve we only see text and no emotion on here ...... the site I want the countdown on is www.anglianbodybuilding.co.uk
    and the countdown looks crap .... lol
    And the ones that Acorn suggested are nice but bit complicated for me ...
    Thanks for your explaination....ha ha

    Well, aside from the countdown host's water mark, I think it suits the rest of the page well enough?
    Are you looking for something simpler/plainer?
