What I want to do is make the text marque inside a fixed width div. I was thinking that I should get the element by id, get its height, and width. determine the inner divs height and width. Since the inner div would be clipped from view by the parent div because I'd use overflow: hidden; in the css rule for it. Then I would += the inner divs top value until the bottom reaches the top and then reset it so it flows smoothly. Would anyone know how to implement this? I suck at javascript animations but I'd like to stop on mouse over and resume on mouseout.
