04.06.2006 - so_ticker
I've been sitting on this one for a while (started it in February) because I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I also wasn't sure that it was as accessible as it needed to be (or could be), given its nature.
That said, this is one of those things that clients/product managers/etc want all the time, so there is no reason not to make one available that is as accessible and unobtrusive as possible. I'm still not 100% that it is, so any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Have a look at so_ticker, a horizontal, one-letter-at-a-time news ticker and let me know what you think.

Theres is only a problem with it in Safari. If you are with the mouse over it, it goes to the end until its blank again and if you then leave, nothing happens anymore. You will see nothing.

so_ticker = new Object();
is necessary? I've started using object literals when applicable but have never needed it.
