Is there anyway to make a javascript/dhtml ticker (like a stock price ticker) jump to a specific position with Javascript based on an argument.  I'm using the following code for my ticker.

* Cross browser Marquee II- © Dynamic Drive (
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit for this script and 100s more.

var delayb4scroll=2000 //Specify initial delay before marquee starts to scroll on page (2000=2 seconds)
var marqueespeed=2.5 //Specify marquee scroll speed (larger is faster 1-10)
var pauseit=1 //Pause marquee onMousever (0=no. 1=yes)?


var copyspeed=marqueespeed
var pausespeed=(pauseit==0)? copyspeed: 0
var actualwidth=''

function scrollmarquee() {
if (parseInt(>(actualwidth*(-1)+8))"px"

function initializemarquee(){
      if (window.opera || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Netscape/7")!=-1){ //if Opera or Netscape 7x, add scrollbars to scroll and exit
      setTimeout('lefttime=setInterval("scrollmarquee()",30)', delayb4scroll)

if (window.addEventListener)
      window.addEventListener("load", initializemarquee, false)
else if (window.attachEvent)
      window.attachEvent("onload", initializemarquee)
else if (document.getElementById)
