    rotating text (FP 2002)

    I would like to have a series of text statements to rotate in and out of a page. I would like to have a series of 50 statements that are picked randomly to be displayed. How do I do that?

    Thank you. Fay

    I think a java applet might be the way to go. It could certainly pick the random statements from your group of 50. When you say rotate - did you mean rotate on the page, physically?

    From <A target="_blank" HREF=http://javascript.internet.com/messages/rqt-puns.html>The JavaScript Source</A> comes this script for generating random quotes.

    Otherwise, you could use the Banner generator built into FP - normally this uses images but I believe there is an option to use plain text.
