Creating Ticker from RSS Feeds

A librarian desired to display latest news as 'Ticker' on a large Plasma TV. The same was used to show-case the library site with recently acquired material. Adding a News Ticker could make the display screen more attention grabbing.

I suggested a simple solution based on a plug-in that can display RSS Feed as Ticker in Firefox. The solution has been described in the following slide show. A server side RSS Feed display would be a more elegant solution but would require fiddling with site code.
