Is it possible to create Marquees that start from the left and the right
side of the same line, crossing over each other as they pass through? 
something like this: 
 amar -->                              <-- amar

Amar, 

I don't know if you are familiar with Scalable Vector Graphics, SVG but it
can be used to produced standalone Web pages or embedded in HTML/XHTML Web
pages. 

I created a double scrolling text message in SVG, to produce the visual
effect that I think you wanted, and posted it online at 
http://www.svgenius.com/Experiments/DoubleMarquee.svg 

If you are unfamiliar with SVG you will probably need to download the Adobe
SVG Viewer (http://www.adobe.com/SVG/) and install it in your browser. 

Then just go to the URL given above. 

SVG images can be embedded in HTML/XHTML pages. 

If you want to see a Web site created as a proof of concept using SVG only
then visit 
http://www.svgspider.com/default.svg 

If you need a book to introduce you to SVG take a look at 
http://www.newriders.com/books/title.cfm?isbn=0735711666 

There is an SVG developers' mailing list on Yahoo Groups. See 
http://www.yahoogroups.com/group/svg-developers 

I hope that helps.
