Description: This is your regular message scroller, except in IE5+ and NS6+, the messages are gradually faded into view! Check out the technique used to accomplish the fading- dynamically altering the text's color. The scroller comes with the following two features:

  • Fade from any color to another for the scroller text, such as from black to white, white to black etc.
  • Links inside messages (if any) can also be set to either fade, or remain their original color.
