apart from the colour of the browser scroll bar there is very little you can change other than on / off

you can use DHTML to create a scrolling layer. There are loads of examples which are pre-written (cut and paste jobs) but its not that hard to write your own

DHTML Scroller ('http://javascript.internet.com/page-details/dhtml-scroller.html')

You can do it using DHTML (above)

or you can use IFRAME 's

add your text to another page (text.html)

in your main page add

<iframe src="text.html" height="100" width="100" scrolling="auto"></iframe>

Consider a pure CSS Scroller. No Javascript
