    Post Pausing up-down message scroller

    Pausing up-down message scroller
    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/crosstick.htm

    This scroller works great!!
    I searched for this Q but did'nt find my A, so I'm hoping for some help:

    I'd like to run the same script 2 times on the same page, I know I have to change something but don't know what, any hints?

    Code:
    <!--start scrolling script-->
    <script language="JavaScript1.2">
    
    //configure the below five variables to change the style of the scroller
    var scrollerwidth=200
    var scrollerheight=20
    var scrollerbgcolor=''
    //set below to '' if you don't wish to use a background image
    var scrollerbackground=''
    
    //configure the below variable to change the contents of the scroller
    var messages=new Array()
    messages[0]="[ Web Development ]"
    messages[1]="[ Interests ]"
    messages[2]="[ Portal ]"
    messages[3]="[ Solutions ]"
    messages[4]="[ Hobbies ]"
    
    ///////Do not edit pass this line///////////////////////
    
    if (messages.length>1)
    i=2
    else
    i=0
    
    function move1(whichlayer){
    tlayer=eval(whichlayer)
    if (tlayer.top>0&&tlayer.top<=5){
    tlayer.top=0
    setTimeout("move1(tlayer)",3000)
    setTimeout("move2(document.main.document.second)",3000)
    return
    }
    if (tlayer.top>=tlayer.document.height*-1){
    tlayer.top-=5
    setTimeout("move1(tlayer)",100)
    }
    else{
    tlayer.top=scrollerheight
    tlayer.document.write(messages[i])
    tlayer.document.close()
    if (i==messages.length-1)
    i=0
    else
    i++
    }
    }
    
    function move2(whichlayer){
    tlayer2=eval(whichlayer)
    if (tlayer2.top>0&&tlayer2.top<=5){
    tlayer2.top=0
    setTimeout("move2(tlayer2)",3000)
    setTimeout("move1(document.main.document.first)",3000)
    return
    }
    if (tlayer2.top>=tlayer2.document.height*-1){
    tlayer2.top-=5
    setTimeout("move2(tlayer2)",100)
    }
    else{
    tlayer2.top=scrollerheight
    tlayer2.document.write(messages[i])
    tlayer2.document.close()
    if (i==messages.length-1)
    i=0
    else
    i++
    }
    }
    
    function move3(whichdiv){
    tdiv=eval(whichdiv)
    if (tdiv.style.pixelTop>0&&tdiv.style.pixelTop<=5){
    tdiv.style.pixelTop=0
    setTimeout("move3(tdiv)",3000)
    setTimeout("move4(second2)",3000)
    return
    }
    if (tdiv.style.pixelTop>=tdiv.offsetHeight*-1){
    tdiv.style.pixelTop-=5
    setTimeout("move3(tdiv)",100)
    }
    else{
    tdiv.style.pixelTop=scrollerheight
    tdiv.innerHTML=messages[i]
    if (i==messages.length-1)
    i=0
    else

    There's no easy way to embed multiple copies of this script on the same page unfortunately. I do plan on rewriting this script sometime in the future so support this.
