    Does anyone know of a good news ticker type thing? somewhat like http://www.nba.com but not totally. I would perfer if it were not a java applet--as those tend to take awhile to load. Any help would be appriciated.

    The only other way I could think of doing it other then Java is using a <marquee></marquee> tag on some SSI'd file off of a website that provides the java marquee (if you check the source, sometimes it references a file that it updates or something.)
    The code would look something like this:
    Code:
    <marquee><!--#include virtual="http://you.thing.com/foo/news.txt"--></marquee>
    THIS ONLY WORKS IN IE, though, so I would recommend just using an applet instead. As for people who provide them, the only one I know of is http://www.moreover.net (advertised on SitePoint.com), and they don't do tickers but real news page that plugin to your site.

    Good luck on your search, though!

    ... what's the world coming to?

    This isn't really a ticker-tape, but uses layers and DHTML to change news items... I dunno what feeds are available though...

    http://webreference.com/headlines/nh/flipper/ and http://webreference.com/headlines/nh/.

    It seems to be mostly Internet Related stuff, but you might be able to adapt it.

    You can probably find a ticker customizeable code at http://www.dynamicdrive.com - I have a headlines ticker that we offer to other sites on my page and we got it from there.
