Modify script

Below is a script i need to modify to work and its driving me nuts.
Essentially it fades the content of an array. The original script
specified the object name, I tried to modify it to allow an object to
be passed instead as there are two fading areas on the page code
below, to be honest I could see absolutely no reason why but im not
that offay with javascript so this could be down to me.

Deadlines are getting tight on this one so not bothered how its done
but i need to be able to have fading content on the two specified
areas, one statscroller the other newscroller. The second content
array has been setup, news_fcontent, but it not used.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

<script type="text/javascript">

Do you expect me to lie about the quality of the source (double sense) so
that you are satisfied with what you have and continue to cause your users
and yourself all kinds of trouble?

No, but im not asking for observations on the source code, i can tell
that myself even though im not offay with javascript. But as this was
already in place and im having to adapt it due to tight deadlines,
plus the fact im not fully familiar with javascript, a solution (be it
the code modified or an alternative) would have been much more helpful
than your sarcy comment.

No, but im not asking for observations on the source code,
Usenet is not there to provide what you asked for.

I doubt that very much.
But as this was already in place and im having to adapt it due to tight

So you painted yourself into a corner and blame others for not helping you
out of it.

I have named the place where you are likely to receive help about this code.
Unless you are willing to pay someone for the service, the only alternative
is to learn JavaScript yourself (for example, by reading here; there's also
a FAQ at <http://jibbering.com/faq/>) and to stop full-quoting here.
