Please point me to a language (perl I hope)
Message ID:
Sorry if this is off topic, but I really don't know who else to ask.

Heres what I want to do.. maybe you would be so kind as to tell me what language this can best be done in. I'm just learning perl and know HTML.

within frames (or a table)...
I would like to put a large gif in the backround and then place a smaller gif over it.
The smaller gif is where the movement or animation would happen, Like a mouth moving over a picture of a person. 

Could this be done with 2 or 3 small moving gifs at the same time?
Like a candle flame and a mouth of a person?

If I had a picture of a forest, I'd like to have a person walk from left to right.
would this mean individual gifs or one multi-gif animation in a frame that moves over the backround?

I have looked into Java, Javascript, CSS and DHTML and all look promising, but I have yet to find an example in a book that answers my question.

Help? Please?
