Closing Thoughts

I use document.write() to dynamically write out the tag for IE (instead of simply directly embedding it on the page). This is to avoid future potential problems with NS when and if NS eventually does support the ; the code was written exclusively for IE in this respect! Function initializemarquee() is what's used to fill the scroller with the desired text for NS. It first accesses the , then tag, and finally, it's document.write() method to accomplish this.

So there you have it! A cool, cross browser scroller you can use on your webpage. Finally, I leave you with a few additional examples on the web regarding DHTML scrollers:

-Dynamic Drive DHTML scrollers
-DevEdge Ticker object (Requires NS 4+)

Take a peek into their source codes...that's how you learn!

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
