Subject: SVG is the solution (was:: Two Marquee messages on the same line)

In a message dated 25/11/01 03:18:39 GMT Standard Time, TS2017@emirates.com

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 


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

I created a double scrolling text message in SVG, to produce the visual
effect that I think you wanted, and posted it online at 

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 

If you need a book to introduce you to SVG take a look at 

There is an SVG developers' mailing list on Yahoo Groups. See 

I hope that helps.
