Vertical text ticker (using tilted letters)


 / Published in: JavaScript
 

URL: http://www.fabulant.com/downloadcenter/texttickervertical/texttickervertical.html

This is probably the first vertical JavaScript text ticker that sues tilted letters. Works with Internet Explorer 6x/7x/8x/9x, Firefox 3.6x, Opera 10.5x and Google Chrome 4x/5x/6x. Older Browsers show no ticker.
