Recently, I was reading Smashing Magazine's article "35 Designers x 5 Questions" and saw a reference to CSS Mastery written by Andy Budd, Simon Collison, and Cameron Moll. Since this is the book that lead me directly into CSS, I started to click a bit deeper.

One thing lead to another and I clicked on a link in the article - Don Lindop. He had a flash component on the home page that made me think about recreating it using CSS, an image and a bit of JQuery.

As luck would have it I noticed when Sam Collett posted the update for his JQuery Plugin newsticker.

Eureka! I downloaded the newsticker plugin and put together this example. My apologizes to all.
