    Default beginner and need simple help. please!

    Hi,
    I have created a Java news ticker using the Javascript News Ticker program, where I specified the width and height of the ticker.

    when I put the ticker on my website, using MS Expression, the ticker expands to show all the news enteries rather than stick to the previously specified height.

    currently the code I have is:
    <div id="news_ticker"></div>
    <script language="javascript" src="newsticker.js"></script>

    how can I make it stick to the height and width I want? what should I add?

    I'm new in this, so please explain in simpley english and in as much details as possible.

    THANKS

    As this is JavaScript not Java, for most people it will not be a simple as your title may make out .
    As far I'm aware, It's completely acceptable for you to ask JS questions here, but I'm just here to say might be waiting a fair amount of time for a reply.

    -Good luck.

    As newbie suggested, this forum is mostly for discussing Java, which is different from Javascript. While the two share some similarities, they are quite different.

    I would suggest posting your question on one of these forums, they'll be more capable at helping you with your problem.

    JavaScript Development Forums
    JavaScript programming - CodingForums.com

    From the looks of what you're asking, it looks like any HTML forum might also be able to help you as well.

    HTML - WebDeveloper.com
    HTML Forum

    Note: I am not a member of any of these forums so I have no idea how they operate, though I would suspect they would be something similar to this forum (except for Javascript/HTML instead of Java).
