    Default Javascript News 'Ticker'

    I'm looking at using a javascript to make a news ticker service.

    I'm referring to the horizontal type scrolling text box, with hyperlinks. It
    is just a plain simple one and I don't know any variables apart from how fast
    the text moves. I also found that adding a <br> or <br /> to the actual html
    mark-up in my javascript, gives me a double width , so I just use ----- to
    separate the various news items. You can use a <br /> in a vertical scrolling
    text box. Just a tip.

    I realise I can use html mark up, but I am stuck on getting an image to show
    up. I did this a few days ago, but forgot how to do so. Searching online here
    gives me Fireworks info , but I'm just using a separate js file and just need
    to know how to include an image.

    I thought using (img src= blahblah.png/) was clever for some reason. I do not
    think I can use commas though, so no src="" will be there.

    How do I do this?

    I realise people abuse javascript, but I use it for useful things, and think
    that using a little bit of javascript is almost obligatory if you have a web
    site.

    I also observe that 20,000 authors seem to claim to have invented your basic
    scrollbox which is jus using marquee, but hiding it from the Wc3 in a way. We
    are just using marquee, but get xhtml 1.1 standard for doing it with
    javascript. Am I off kilter for thinking this to be fact?

    Cheers in advance of some easy answer on the image placement using a .js file.

    Default Re: Javascript News 'Ticker'

    Its ok

    You just need to use a <img src=here.jpg>

    For a break just use a nospace.

    What I need to know now is how to style the text and background and html mark up of bold in the javascript .
