Hi, I just wanted to ask, when I close the forum for maintenance what is a good html code so that it will display a totally separate screen with the text that I want?

A separate screen?

Personally I'd do that on an htaccess level to direct people to index2.html file when the site is going to be offline for a longer than usual time and given that the forum may not be accessible, not even on the closed notice.

And when done, use htaccess again to direct them back to the forum.

But if your site is going to be only close for a short while.... I'd just keep the closed notice simple and within the closed notice box... ie.... something like this

PHP:
<center>
<b>Important title here</b>
<br />
<br />
Message here
<br />
<br />
</center>
Simple and anything can read it.
