TextScroller supports a nice list of features to present information to your users.  Use the applet to scroll text left, right, down and up as well as fade and zoom.  Customize the background color or jpeg image, border color, text color and font characteristics.  Associate a text color-highlighting URL link to each message.  TextScroller is highly configurable to meet your needs.  Have a look at the examples to see what can be achieved.
