I'm looking for a good marquee extension to add to my web page.  It has to be compatible with IE and Netscape.

Hi Schmir1,
Unfortunately, no such extension has been made to my knowledge.

The reason for this is simple, the MARQUEE tag is non-standard and not supported by the Netscape browsers (or others). It's simply not compatible with the standard and is an IE-only tag.

The only extensions that come close to a MARQUEE extension compatible crossbrowser would be an extension that will scroll a layer (DIV).

For more on these kind of extensions that has crossbrowser compatability and more look through these links:
http://www.yaromat.com/dw/index.php?t=Behavior&r=layers (scrollomat)

Give the last one a go first, I think that's might be closest to what you're looking for.

good luck!

I'm trying scrollomat. I'm using a template for all my pages.  Do I just stick the javascript into the template?  Will the body statement work in the template with the onLoad even though the layers are in another file?
Here is the body statement:

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000"

hi schmir,
Hard to help unless you upload your file to internet and give a url, but I will give a try anyways :-)

Yes, make sure both the javascript and layers are in the area of the template that can not be edited from the html files. This way your code for the scroller gets inserted into all your pages that is generated from your template.

I got the javascript and the body statement to work in the template.  Something go screwed up with the template but I fixed it by using the Save As and replacing the template with a new version of itself.

Anyhow, I'm close now.  Only problem left is that the size of the layers is larger when view with Netscape.  It shows as one scrolling line of text in IE but as 3 lines in Netscape.  Any ideas.

Just curious.  Have you ever used Dreamweaver to generate JavaScript?  A book I was reading this weekend made it sound like Dreamweaver would generate animated stuff using layers and JavaScrip.  I'm wondering what the advantage of having Dreamweaver do the JavaScrip over using sample code that others have written.

can you upload the page so I can look at the source?
It's hard to find out what's wrong with the code when I'm not looking at it.

As to javascript made drom DW and from sample code made from others it's basically the same thing. The Code generated by DW is made from sample code within DW. You can actually edit the files that DW uses to generate javascript. The only difference I see between using js code from another site , and let dw generate the js, is that with DW it's much easier and faster to insert and edit.

Try inserting some these values:
in your body tag:

inside your html:
<div id="Layer2" style="position:absolute; width:2000px; height:25px; z-index:3; clip: rect(0 710 25 0); left: 128px; top: 292px">
<table border="0">
<tr><td nowrap>............Do you need help? .......................Don't have resources?...................... No prototyping cabability?...................... Need a device designed?....................... Need hybrids build?.............................MCL can help!!!!!!!!!!</td></tr></table>    

It works here for me on both browsers, but you might want to play around with the values. I don't know the size of some of the graphics included on your webapge, so it's hard to position the layer correctly.
