Hi

I've put up some scrolling text for a client's website using the code below. It specifies that the width of the scrolling text is 782px, but I need the scrolling text to have a flexible width. When I try changing 782px to 100% it doesn't work though. Any ideas?


<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

//Specify the marquee's width (in pixels)
var marqueewidth="782px"
//Specify the marquee's height
var marqueeheight="2em"
//Specify the marquee's marquee speed (larger is faster 1-10)
var marqueespeed=1
//configure background color:
var marqueebgcolor="#DEFDD9"
//Pause marquee onMousever (0=no. 1=yes)?
var pauseit=1

//Keep all content on ONE line, and backslash any single quotations (ie: that\'s great):

var marqueecontent='<div style="white-space:nowrap"><a href="issues/CurrentIssues.asp?id=7">Royal Mail & Parcelforce Standards of Service</a> | <a href=pdf/pressnews/27.4.04SizedBasedPricing.pdf target=" & lsTarget & " title="pdf opens in a new window">Does size matter to you?</a> | <a href=pdf/pressnews/23.4.04SpoofChainLetterWarning.pdf target=" & lsTarget & " title="pdf opens in a new window">Post watchdog warns of spoof chain letter targeted at children</a> | <a href=pdf/pressnews/14.04.04Returnofthetabssimple,cheapandhelpful.pdf target=" & lsTarget & " title="pdf opens in a new window">Return of the tabs: simple, cheap and helpful</a> | </div>'

marqueespeed=(document.all)? marqueespeed : Math.max(1, marqueespeed-1) //slow speed down by 1 for NS
var copyspeed=marqueespeed
var pausespeed=(pauseit==0)? copyspeed: 0
var iedom=document.all||document.getElementById
if (iedom)
document.write('<span id="temp" style="visibility:hidden;position:absolute;top:-100px;left:-9000px">'+marqueecontent+'</span>')
var actualwidth=''
var cross_marquee, ns_marquee

function populate(){
if (iedom){
cross_marquee=document.getElementById? document.getElementById("iemarquee") : document.all.iemarquee
cross_marquee.style.left=parseInt(marqueewidth)+8+"px"
cross_marquee.innerHTML=marqueecontent
actualwidth=document.all? temp.offsetWidth : document.getElementById("temp").offsetWidth
}
else if (document.layers){
ns_marquee=document.ns_marquee.document.ns_marquee2
ns_marquee.left=parseInt(marqueewidth)+8
ns_marquee.document.write(marqueecontent)
ns_marquee.document.close()

}
lefttime=setInterval("scrollmarquee()",20)
}

else
cross_marquee.style.left=parseInt(marqueewidth)+8+"px"

}
else if (document.layers){
if (ns_marquee.left>(actualwidth*(-1)+8))
ns_marquee.left-=copyspeed
else
ns_marquee.left=parseInt(marqueewidth)+8
}
}
