Hi Ryan. Welcome to the forum

if you want to take this seriously then dont use such toys. Thes are great for news sites or financial sites like business markets

<Marquee only works across IE browsers therefore everyone using FF wont see this.

if you must use it then you need a javascript universal script or you could do it in Flash

If do want one, you'll have to make some custom code or search the Adobe Exchange for a commercial extension. I worked on one for saultstemarie.com, you can look at the JS, but the marquee is currently empty (no text). The solution on that site totally separates HTML and JS. The HTML is simply some div tags, while the external JS file does all the work.
A normal usability problem with tickers are their scroll speed. People read at different speeds, and marquees usually ignores that and sets it's own reading speed.
