1) Script Title: Text and Image Crawler

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

3) Describe problem: I have the crawler (using only text) set to 450 pixels wide and it works fine when I have several text items to crawl. They crawl through the entire 450 pixels as I would expect.

But sometimes I have only one or two very short items to display and then the text is not large enough to fill the 450 pixel width. In this situation the crawler reduces the width and has the text crawling in an area equal to the size of the text instead of the entire width I have set. This looks really strange since you would expect any text (even a small bit) to scroll across the entire width of the crawler.

Is there any way to make this work across the entire width even with small amounts of text?

FYI, this occurs when using the Safari/Webkit browser.
