IE8 & scrolling task bar text


anchor

Likes # 0

I have very recently upgraded from IE6 to IE8.

Occasionally I would place a scrolling task bar message on a page, & never had problems. I am in the process of making a page for a University colleague who is soon to retire.

During the design phase it worked fine, even when I click on the final xxxx.htm file in the directory I had created. This is being viewed in the IE8 browser.

On uploading it and then accessing it via the web site, I see everything, hear the music, but don`t see the scrolling task bar message; (Wishing you every happiness for your retirement - May it bring everything you wish for).

On looking at the same site on my laptop, (which still uses IE6), the text scrolls as it should do.

Can anyone explain this, and what can I do to remedy it?. Thanks for your help.

(If its relevant, no change even with Zone Alarm turned off).

Move the script definition so it is inside the head section and change the start of the script as below making sure to start new lines where I have:

<script language="JavaScript">
<!-- Begin
function infoscroll(seed,looped){var text1 = "Wishing you every happiness for your retirement";
var text2 = " - May it bring everything you wish for";
-
-
-
- }
}
// End -->
</script>


Inside the body section call the script with:

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
infoscroll(100,1)
// -->
</script>
