1) Script Title: rsspausescroller

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/rsspausescroller/index.htm

3) Describe problem:

I have adapted the rsspausescroller for my framework in the following way:
I put the styles in their own file and load it when the page is constructed
Ditto for the javascript. It goes in a directory called js with all the other js's.

I have a global javascript variable for the server and so I used it to construct
the url of the scrollerbridge that all appears to work fine.
I am fetching the rss feed and pupolating the feed box just fine but it just wasnt scrolling.

After my feed failed, I tried the feeds in the demo, cnn and dynamicdrive in case it might be the feed's fault. That's interesting, the cnn feed scrolls fine, but it puts a lot of html garbage in there too.
The dynamicdrive feed, naturally, works perfectly.
The feed I want to use is
http://www.gazettetimes.com/?rss=entertainment/fri_to_fri
I tested it in http://feedvalidator.org/ and it validates.
So it seems like my set up is OK and it seems like the feed is well formed.

new rsspausescroller("cnn", "pscroller2", "rssclass", 3000, "", "date+description");

http://demo.wazzuplocal.com

I am getting "rsscontent has no properties" from line 17 of the rss javascript. but only for my feed -- no errors from the dynamic drive feed. Testing on firefox, but there are sposed to work on the major browsers, no?

Thank s in avance for any help.

Quite a few peeks but no replies... Then I take it no one knows? That is too bad... I had really hoped to use this.
