Default How to do rolling text

I have a client wanting to have rolling text (for client success stories) on their website. What are the options for creating this effect?

Can you give an example? Do you mean animating it like a continuous wave?

My client says they want to fade from one statement to the other". That sounds like something Flash can do but I wanted to see if there were other options. I've seen Calendar of Events that will roll or scroll on their own. What technology is used for that? I may have to try a couple things and see what works for them.

JavaScript or Flash. If it has important info in it, use unobtrusive JS for accessibility. If it's just images or mumbo/jumbo, use Flash.
