Non-scrolling ticker in colour

I need a news ticker that doesn't tick. It should present text strings set by my PARAMS. I have something like it in javaScript but it isn't "flashy" enough, i also need it to be able to handle å,ä,ö.
The "headlines" should fade in and fade out. I would like to be able to control bgcolor and text color, and also the presentation speed. A headline should look something like this:

SPORTS: Liverpool wins little league

Where SPORTS: is in, say red, and the rest in black.

I have searched the web but been unable to find this sort of Marquee, the closest is cnn.com (i'd sure like that one, but it's copyrighted).

147 points ain't much for this, i know, but i'm down to my last points...

I can send you my ScrollingText applet (source code)
that can be easily changed to do what you want.
