Custom html file with pix and links as Mac desktop display?

Advertisement

Hi, in Windows it is possible to select an html file to use as your desktop display...pictures, web links, and links to network and local folders, files, and applications can be written directly into the html page. It was actually really nice.
How can this be done on a Mac?
It would be great to have personal pictures, text (poems and to do lists) displayed as the desktop background...with links to files (inspirational .mov files, recently used files, even the html file for the desktop itself for quick changes), links to start applications, and links to favorite websites...all accessible from the desktop itself.
Alternatively, would these links need to be placed in the dashboard or expose or ? Would the text over a background image in html need to be composited into a static image file?
thanks

I don't believe there is a way in the Mac world to specify anything but image files to be used as your desktop.
I might suggest that you open the HTML fileof your choice in a browser, and take a screen shot of the output. Then you can assign that screen shot to be your desktop.
Command-shift-4 will give you a crosshair cursor to drag around the area you wish to capture.
