    Isn't there an html tag <marquee> that does it:

    Code:
    <marquee width="55%" height="200" direction="left" 
      behaviour="alternate" loop="-1"
      scrollamount="3" scrolldelay="3">
    YOUR TEXT HERE
    </marquee>
    For a javascript solution try:
    http://javascript.internet.com

    Hope this helps

    Not the html version

    Dear Zing,

    Thanks for that but that is not what i need. I need a javascript version of it. Also i already check javascript.internet.com and haven't found any there. I need my page to be validated by W3C with the moving text. I know with the html version it would validate with errors, which i dont want.
    Any other suggestions

    Thanks alot,
    rsadik

    This is from steelersfan's web site and from his server's forum that he administers. You can get rid of the link I guess, but i guess it copyrited.
