Can anyone help me by posting a typewriter style java or html script to replace the bluevoda marquee? Ideally, one you have used/tested...

Cheers,

Do you mean a sort of fade in and fade out textual script like this one: (http://bluevodamembersclub.com/bvtutorials/dns/).

If you mean like what shows up on signs like at banks etc.. thats an animation. Its either done in flash or animation software.

Thanks for replying. If you check out the bbc website you'll see what I mean. (www.bbc.co.uk). Its at the centre of the page below the header.

My fault; if you follow the 'news' link you will see the ticker. Digging deeper I've found a script here:http://members.core.com/~rnbovara/typeit.html

However, what I really like about the bbc script is its ability to add a timeout delay per story. Any ideas how I could modify the above script to create a timeout per line or over multiple lines? I looked at the BBC script source and it contains a timeout whihc allows you to read the headlines.
