Skype text banners appear below your name on your Skype friends' contact lists. You can use these text banners to link to a website or insert a message below your name -- for example, you may want to insert the message "I am out of town" when you travel. Businesses commonly use text banners to display websites or phone numbers. Add a text banner to your Skype name from Skype's File menu.
