NewsTicker For Rapidweaver Updated

After Joost's departure from the Stacks world, Tsooj Media has been formally integrated into Stacks4Stacks. The first stack to appear on the S4S page is NewsTicker.

A News ticker, or a marquee displays a running line of text – useful for displaying large amounts of information in the compactest possible space. You see marquees regularly, displaying the latest stock prices, or breaking news. The <marquee> tag was never actually an official HTML tag and is not supported by all browsers.

NewsTicker is a stack that was originally developed by Tsooj Media. It uses a combination of jQuery and CSS and works with all browsers. Originally NewsTicker wasn't fully responsive, the text would break and form multiple lines on narrower screens, making it difficult to read.

Will has rewritten NewsTicker. It is now fully responsive, and scrolls infinitely, it will now accept Styled Text, HTML, or Markdown and the colour options have been expanded. NewsTicker can now load with the text visible on the page, there is a new option for Line height and multiple NewsTicker stacks can be placed on the same page. All that's missing for a Nasdaq feed is an option for an API.

Tips: NewsTicker breaks out of its container and runs across the whole page. If you wish to restrict it to a specific width, Useful Stack (available free from S4S) will come to your aid.
Always place NewsTicker in a containing stack e.g. Useful Stack, or a column stack, otherwise it may not be visible on the page.
Don't place NewsTicker in the same container as and immediately preceding a Headline! If you do, the headline develops an eratic marquee effect too! (I'm assuming that this is an oversight which will soon be fixed)
