Another question(s) from design class 101.

I am using the Marquee tag for scrolling text for prototyping purposes.

A: How can I get the text to pre-load on the page and then start moving. (Versus coming in at the sides of the screen to begin)

B: What is the best alternative (and the purest replacement) to move away from Marquee that will accomplish A? a simple example would be beyond cool.
