This is a scrolling news ticker which reads in the desired XML and displays it in an easy-to-read side-scrolling ticker. I decided to let users control the speed of the ticker by using their mouse position. The further left you are, the slower the ticker goes and it will even allow you to go in reverse (in case you weren't done reading).
This ticker comes with an on-site version and an embed version so it can be added to a user's site or blog. Nifty.
