    Javascript scroller from text file

    Can someone point me to a JavaScript scroller that reads the text from a separate text file or some other else that might do that? I envision a web page were one of our school teachers sends me a text file with that days homework or the whole weeks assignments and then I put it on the web server and it is displayed in a scrolling text box.

    Thanks! <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29>
    What if your local back-up disks are stolen or damaged (fire, flood, earthquake)
    What are you going to do?
    LOCAL and OFFSITE back-up - the only true way to protect your data.

    Re: Javascript scroller from text file

    How about a frames page, with one frame having something like
    "Monday", Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", Friday"
    on it.
    Each day is a hyperlink to a .txt file (e.g. monday.txt) which will load the relevant text file into that frame - you can then use the normal browser scroll bars.<pre>

    Monday</p></pre>
