    Vic,

    Thanks so much!

    Really appreciate it; I didn't think it could be so simple.

    ... and if I wanted to make the sequence always start with a different quote?

    crossobj.innerHTML=message[Math.floor(Math.random()*message.length)];

    Hi guys,

    I want to get the scroller to start from the right side but not all the way to the left. I want the same effect as the original settings/example but to scroll from the right.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks.

    Hey Vic,

    Thanks for the code, just what I wanted (the one that appears from right).

    Now here's the problem/hard part. I'm not an expert and quite new to web design. I only want the right scroller in header. Which part of the code should I use?

    Thanks.

    I want to position the scroller that starts from the right side inside my header div. Also how do I change/Set the stop point? Maybe like 100px from the right (inside the header).
