    1. I'm currently implementing the script found here:
    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...tickertape.htm

    on my page at http://www.2000tutor.com The script works fine on IE but tends to get "hung" on Netscape. By this I mean that half of the ticker will show up at the very top of the page instead of where it is supposed to. As soon as you scroll down it goes away. I've tried re-pasting the code with no modifications and it still happens. I've rechecked all my HTML to make sure that there aren't any errors.

    Any ideas?

    2. I'm implementing a webfeed from www.moreover.com on the same page. It shows up just fine in IE but doesn't show up in Netscape. I've been through the tutorials for how to have multiple scripts run on the same page but that hasn't helped. I'm going to post this in support forum over on moreover.com but I figured if someone was already going to look at my page to help with #1 they might see what's wrong with the webfeed as well.

    Thanks!

    For Problem #1, Change your TickerTape ID to position:absolute in the Style section. Netscape doesn't let you script non-absolutely positioned elements.

    For Problem #2, Your tables are all out of wack. You close a table cell, table row and table right before the Moreover code and again afterwards. My guess is your missing some tags somewhere.

    It gets worse when I change it to absolute. Witness http://wwww.2000tutor.com/index1.htm

    Does the style definition need to go between the body tags rather than the head tags?

    As for #2, I'll take another look at my tables. I did run the page through an HTML validator yesterday and it was fine but I'll reexamine everything tonight.

    Thanks for the speedy help!
