I did the XML fetching part using xml_domit_rss_lite from PHPClasses.org. The ticker part was done with Prototype.js + some
hand coding. You can see the finished result at http:// pregnancyresearchcenter.com
If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t use xml_domit_rss_lite, it’s just
way too many files and dependencies for my taste. Very abstract, very
long-beard. But it really really works, even on very funky RSS. A
little searching at HotScripts should turn up something simpler.

Does anyone know how to create a news ticker, or moving headline

Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
