    Scrolling text in Javascript

    Hi Guys,

    I'm not the greatest Javascript expert but have found exactly the right javascript i'm looking for which is a scrolling vertical text scroller that pauses when you hover:

    http://www.hypergurl.com/verticaltext.html

    Does anyone know of a script (maybe not even in Javascript) that also runs as a scroller?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Thanks. Only trouble I can see with this is that the W3C and <marquee> tags don't like each other? That right? Hence why I wondered bout Javascript.

    Yeah, the marquee tag was originally created by Microsoft. It will most likely never be part of any standard. Use it only if you are not afraid of having W3C hunting you down.
