JS working with IE 6.X but not with Firefox 1.0

P: n/a
I have scrolling news that is based on JavaScript on the site I
maintain. The script works in Internet Explorer 6.x, but not Firefox 1.0.
It's not clear to me why the script doesn't work with Firefox. I'd
appreciate it
if someone could help me modify the script so that it would also work with
Firefox.

The scrolling news can be seen on the page at:

Any help is very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Any failures on that page may relate back to the HTML.
<http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/WielkieOczy/>

The first problem you might fix is the one at the top of the page..

Line 13, column 32: required attribute "TYPE" not specified
<script language="JavaScript1.2">

...which should be,
<script type='text/javascript'>

The script is written for the IE object model and for the Netscape 4
object model, Firefox doesn't support those two so you need to look for
a script written for modern browsers supporting the W3C DOM.
Or perhaps you do not need to rely on script as most browsers (IE,
Mozilla, Firefox, Netscape 7, Opera 7, I think Safari 1.2 too) support
the <marquee> element by now so as you probably don't know to script
yourself you could consider using marquee for your scoller.
