Start over and don't tinker too much with it. Actually, I cannot tell if this is exactly your fault (sometimes an editor will do this all by itself) or not but, the script code has been converted to a single line on your:

http://www.mindpractice.com/exfile.htm

page. It is supposed to look like this:


<script language="JavaScript1.2">

//IFRAME TICKER- By Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)

//configure delay between changing messages (3000=3 seconds)
var delay=3000

var ie4=document.all

var curindex=0
var totalcontent=0

function get_total(){
if (ie4){
while (eval("document.all.content"+totalcontent))
totalcontent++
}
else{
while (document.getElementById("content"+totalcontent))
totalcontent++
}
}

function contract_all(){
for (y=0;y<totalcontent;y++){
if (ie4)
eval("document.all.content"+y).style.display="none"
else
document.getElementById("content"+y).style.display="none"
}
}

function expand_one(which){
contract_all()
if (ie4)
eval("document.all.content"+which).style.display=""
else
document.getElementById("content"+which).style.display=""
}

function rotate_content(){
get_total()
contract_all()
expand_one(curindex)
curindex=(curindex<totalcontent-1)? curindex+1: 0
setTimeout("rotate_content()",delay)
}

window.onload=rotate_content

</script>

Not this:


<script language="JavaScript1.2">//IFRAME TICKER- By Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)//configure delay between changing messages (3000=3 seconds)var delay=6000var ie4=document.allvar curindex=0var totalcontent=0function get_total(){if (ie4){while (eval("document.all.content"+totalcontent))totalcontent++}else{while (document.getElementById("content"+totalcontent))totalcontent++}}function contract_all(){for (y=0;y<totalcontent;y++){if (ie4)eval("document.all.content"+y).style.display="none"elsedocument.getElementById("content"+y).style.display="none"}}function expand_one(which){contract_all()if (ie4)eval("document.all.content"+which).style.display=""elsedocument.getElementById("content"+which).style.display=""}function rotate_content(){get_total()contract_all()expand_one(curindex)curindex=(curindex<totalcontent-1)? curindex+1: 0setTimeout("rotate_content()",delay)}window.onload=rotate_content</script>

If it is your editor that is at fault, try notepad or another text only editor for this job.
