Text Effects

Some of these scripts scroll information on the screen - either on the status bar (that bar on the bottom on your browser) or in a text box. Some of these scripts print out messages. Some will display news, special highlights, and others will even tell you a random quote. They range in difficulty from less than 10 lines to more than 500 lines.

Visit The JavaScript Forum for help coding scripts or general questions about the scripts themselves.
