I believe someone said they were able to do this using the HTML <marquee> tag.  Although I would guess it might be a little bit jumpy, it would still have the desired effect.

I did get it to scroll with the <marquee> tag however, the whole list scrolls by. i want to get it to do it on one line like a sports ticker.

By default, the marquee will continue to scroll indefinitely.  Once it reaches the end, it will start over.  If you aren't seeing this behavior, add the attribute "loop=0":

<marque loop=0>This is the marquee text.</marquee>

Adding the attribute "behavior=alternate" will cause it to reverse direction when it hits the end, instead of starting over.

Sorry, sorry, sorry... I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention.  OK, the <chipleaders> token doesn't have any options at this time to display in any way other than in a vertical table.  So, I'll put on the to-do list to add an 'orient' attribute, like the <prizes> token has now, so they can be listed horizontally.
