advanced scrolling marquee

P: n/a
Scenario:
2 web pages - 1 main and page 2
On the page 2 it has information (the data source) that updates when I
put in information on a webform.
One the main page it has a small scrolling marquee. This marquee needs
grab the information from the data source (page 2) and make it display
in a scroll fashion.
Any ideas?

AJAX (or AJAX-lite, as you don't appear to have XML to work with).

Asynch JavaScript that loads page 2 in the background of page1, then
does something clever and JavaScripty with it. It's probably better if
page 2 serves its content as RSS or other XML dialect - that would be
easier to process within page 1

How is a page a data source? If the person has page 1 in his browser,
then he doesn't have page 2.

AJAX isn't a product that you can locate - it's a term used to describe
a number of technologies that are often used together. It's kind of an
over-used buzzword, in my opinion.

Wikipedia has a pretty good write-up about it:

<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AJAX>

I usually find Ajax in the grocery store in the cleaning products aisle.
If I were looking for Ajax-lite, I'd probably start with Google. You
know: http://www.google.com
