1) Script Title:
Pausing Up Down Scroller

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/crosstick.htm

I also used the Tab Content Script:
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/tabcontent.htm

3) Describe problem:

Hello, I don't really know javascript but I need help to troubleshoot a page to find out why the script isn't working properly.

Here is the link to the page:
http://www.lawson-hawks.com/test/servicesbody2.html

This page is normally incuded in another page(with the header and footer, etc) as a PHP include, but I isolated it as an HTML page in case there was any conflicts with the PHP or other Javascript code on the other page.

What needs to happen is this:
As the user mouses over the three pictures, the information at the bottom of the page changes, with a different scroller in each of the three div's (haven't added the scroller to the 3rd div yet- wanted to solve the issues first).

The problem:
Only the scroller that comes up on page load works correctly, the other scrolls but instead of taking up the entire width of the div, it's only one word per line. And if the 3rd div loads as the current page, neither of the scrollers loads correctly.

Also, when mousing back over a previously viewed scroller, sometimes the text of two of the content div's of the scroller will be on top of each other.

I originally had the scrollers in the main file rather than loaded in iframes, but I thought maybe there was a conflict between the tab script and the scroller script, so I seperated them but to no avail. This is the 2nd text scroller script I tried, the previous one had similar problems.

I suspect the problem is partially that both iframes load when the main page loads, but intead they need to load individually when their respective images are moused over, and also reload whenever they are moused over again, but I'm not sure how to do that.

I would greatly appreciate any help in getting this to work smoothly! Thanks in advance!
