    greetings fellow geeks.

    I'm still learning some web dev stuff, and am using some great cross-browser marquee scripts from www.dynamicdrive.com, but what none of them explains is how to get an alternative text to display on an old browser (there are plenty of people on this side of the ocean who aren't up to NS 4 or IE 4 yet, believe it or don't). What I want to happen looks something like this in logical terms:

    If (reading browser meets DHTML criteria) then
    Run DHTML marquee script
    Else
    Just show the marquee script as fixed text
    End If

    Hope someone has an ideer or two...
