Need a Scrolling Marquee

P: n/a
Starting a web page for my local Little League, I want a led-like
scrolling marquee like the one found here: http://www.lnll.org
I'm willing to pay for it.

Thanks,
Coach Jeff

That part of the page is written in Java, not JavaScript. There is no way
to replicate that in JavaScript.

A Google search produces many results for tickers (watch for wrap):

From a quick look at some of the returns, there are some very nice
implementations. They do lack the "LED look" though. Results for
LED-styled tickers aren't quite so impressive.

Yes there is, it's just not worth the effort. The LED background is
simple enough, just an image. Then it becomes just a matter of moving
text around. Could probably be done with a marquee tag and scripting it
to change its text/direction.
