Content in the Javascript library assumes a sound understanding of ECMAScript, CSS, XHTML and DOM.

Text scroller

I created this scroller originally because I needed one which works in Netscape 6. While at it, I thought I would be neat if it could also scroll in reverse. Why, you ask? Because sometimes as a user, you see something you'd like to click on scroll along, and just as you try to click on it… it vanishes! Wouldn’t it be nice to hit “rewind!” and bring it back? With this scroller, you can. View example.

This is an old script and no longer supported. Feel free to download and use the code. It should be pretty easy to use.
