Hi, I have some parsed html I am palcing in a div, then applying Javascript to it to make it scroll - it was some free script i lifted off of the web.  The problem is, it looks like the speed can only be defined as a whole number - I have it set at "1" but it is still too fast - when I put in .75 or any fraction, it does not function - can anyone help with a solution?

Here is the script...

<script type="text/javascript">
var delayTime=5
var marqueeSpeed=1 //Here is where the problem is
var pauseTime=1
var copySpeed=marqueeSpeed
var pauseSpeed=(pauseTime==0)? copySpeed: 0
var actualHeight=''

function ScrollMarquee() {
  if (parseInt(crossMarquee.style.top)>((actualHeight / 2)*(-1)))
  crossMarquee.style.top=parseInt(crossMarquee.style.top)-copySpeed+"px"
  else
  crossMarquee.style.top=0 +"px"
}

function InitializeMarquee()
{
crossMarquee=document.getElementById("vmarquee")
crossMarquee.style.top=0
marqueeheight=document.getElementById("marqueecontainer").offsetHeight
actualHeight=crossMarquee.offsetHeight;
if (window.opera || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Netscape/7")!=-1)
{
crossMarquee.style.height=marqueeheight+"px"
crossMarquee.style.overflow="scroll"
return
}
setTimeout('lefttime=setInterval("ScrollMarquee()",30)', delayTime)
}

if (window.addEventListener)
window.addEventListener("load", InitializeMarquee, false)
else if (window.attachEvent)
window.attachEvent("onload", InitializeMarquee)
else if (document.getElementById)
window.onload=InitializeMarquee
etc...........


Thanks!!!

sorry ignore that

try increasing this 30 which is the interval.
like...
setTimeout('lefttime=setInterval("ScrollMarquee()",100)', delayTime)
0

Sorry - I know I accepted - but is there a way to make this scroll stop and fade - if it is something that is easy, you can answer - if not I can post again - Thanks for your help!
