Hi
i am using this news ticker code
http://www.mioplanet.com/rsc/newsticker_javascript.htm
for displaying scrolling news , i am displaying some content in frame1 and news ticker in frame 2 and the ticker pauses for some time every time the frame1 refreshes.
do you think it is a bug in browsers? or is the code wrong

It is because the browser is processing the new data stealing the cpu so it slows or stops the interval. Nothing new and nothing you will be able to stop it.

Really. so there is no way to make it work.
i will try to remove my js scroller in bottom frame and use flash instead and see if it works.
does anybody know any other websites with news scroller at bottom/or anywhere which will not get interupted by other frames
