ticker issues with IE

I have a ticker that works fine in safari and firefox.  But for some reason it is not working in explorer.  I have attached an image of the results, and I have attached my code.  Can someone let me know what I am doing wrong?

<!DOCTYPE HTML>

<head>
            
            <style type="text/css">
      html { height: 35px; }
      body,td,th {
        font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
        font-size: 10px;
		margin-left: 0px;
		margin-top: 0px;
		margin-right: 0px;
		margin-bottom: 0px;
		}
a:link { COLOR: #0e71f6; }
a:visited { COLOR: #0e71f6; }
white-space: nowrap;

</style>

</head>

<body>

<DIV ID="TICKER" STYLE="display:none; border-top:0px solid #ffffff; border-bottom:1px solid #cccccc; overflow:hidden; background-image: url(../datagrid/images/body_bg.gif); width:700px" onMouseOver="TICKER_PAUSED=true" onMouseOut="TICKER_PAUSED=false">

	<span style='background-image: url(../datagrid/images/head_bg.gif);'> &nbsp; &nbsp; <font color=#666666> <B>TOP 20 RANKING</B></font>&nbsp; &nbsp; </span> &nbsp;<?php print "$xmlBody"; ?>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
	<span style='background-image: url(../datagrid/images/head_bg.gif);'> &nbsp; &nbsp; <font color=#666666> <B>MOST FRIENDS</B></font>&nbsp; &nbsp; </span> &nbsp; <?php print "$xml2Body"; ?>&nbsp; 
	<span style='background-image: url(../datagrid/images/head_bg.gif);'> &nbsp; &nbsp; <font color=#666666> <B>MOST COMMENTS RECEIVED</B></font>&nbsp; &nbsp; </span> &nbsp; <?php print "$xml3Body"; ?>&nbsp;</DIV>

	<script type="text/javascript" src="../webticker_lib.js" language="javascript"></script>

	</body>

</html>

Open in new window

You also need to specify the 'height' on your DIV.  Something like:

<DIV ID="TICKER" STYLE="display:none; border-top:0px solid #ffffff; border-bottom:1px solid #cccccc; overflow:hidden; background-image: url(../datagrid/images/body_bg.gif); width:700px; height:20px;" onMouseOver="TICKER_PAUSED=true" onMouseOut="TICKER_PAUSED=false">

I hope this helps.

I did that, it reduced the size, but the scrolling still does not occur in IE, is there some kind of "no wrap" specification I can add?

Yes,  please try the following:

<DIV ID="TICKER" NOWRAP STYLE="display:none; border-top:0px solid #ffffff; border-bottom:1px solid #cccccc; overflow:hidden; background-image: url(../datagrid/images/body_bg.gif); width:700px; height:20px;" onMouseOver="TICKER_PAUSED=true" onMouseOut="TICKER_PAUSED=false">

BTW, here is the IE reference for the DIV tag:

I had to move the nowrap to this location, and it worked great, thank you very much!

<DIV ID="TICKER" STYLE="white-space:nowrap; display:none; border-top:0px solid #ffffff; border-bottom:1px solid #ffffff; overflow:hidden; background-image: url(../datagrid/images/body_bg.gif); width:700px; height:15px;" onMouseOver="TICKER_PAUSED=true" onMouseOut="TICKER_PAUSED=false">
