It depends on when you want the scrolling text to be there. You can 
put the script in your main <FRAME> document and keep it going for 
you whole site (the onLoad command can appear in the <FRAMESET> tag 
as well as the <BODY> tag). It shouldn't matter where in the tags 
you put the onLoad.

I agree, someone should document this darn thing, mine's all hacked 
up by now...
