Wendell and pm-wiki users

This fundraising thermometer has definately impressed some people at our 
sight. Thanks! We are almost at 75% of our fundraising goal.and it is 
fun watching it grow.

Two questions
1) Would it be appropriate to add this script to pm-wiki site with notes 
on how to get this type of PHP script working? I would like to do that 
for part of my contribution to pm-wiki in general and this script in 
particular. If it should be put on the site with instructions where 
should I put it? It's a pretty short script so I'd probable include the 
code in the text.

2) Would anyone know how to add a couple of lines of code to make it 
look like the thermometer is bursting out the top whenever the "Current" 
excedes the "Goal"?
the code, currently, is at     http://www.arkie.net/~scripts/thermometer/
