I have recently picked up a maintenance contract on an existing site. 
One of the things the site owners want done is to have a message 
scroller replace a static image. I looked around and found a javascript 
that does what is wanted, downloaded, tweaked and tested. It worked well 
and can be seen at:

I plugged the code into the existing index page and only the first 
message displayed properly, with 'undefined' being displayed for all 
subsequent messages. This can be seen here:
Existing menu rollovers work fine, message scroller doesn't. (none of 
the links have pages behind them)

Further testing revealed that removing the existing menu image rollover 
java script allowed the new message scrolling script to work properly. 
More testing revealed that with the menu image rollover script in place, 
but no images to display, the message scrolling script worked properly 
again. This can be seen here:

I only have novice to imtermediate java script skills and hoped this 
task would help me learn more. Instead it has  me perplexed. Ideas, 
solutions and/or better scripts welcomed.
