    Get content from an external file, kinda like php readfile?

    Hi guys.

    I have this script, but it does not work with the readfile("news.txt"). I guess you can't use php in javascript.

    Is there an alternative / how would I come around this issue?

    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript1.2">
    
    /*
    Cross browser marquee script 
    */
    
    
    //Specify the marquee's width (in pixels)
    var marqueewidth=330
    //Specify the marquee's height (in pixels, pertains only to NS)
    var marqueeheight=20
    //Specify the marquee's scroll speed (larger is faster)
    var speed=6
    //Specify the marquee contents
    var marqueecontents='<?php readfile("news.txt"); ?>'
    
    if (document.all)
    document.write('<marquee scrollAmount='+speed+' style="width:'+marqueewidth+'">'+marqueecontents+'</marquee>')
    
    function regenerate(){
    window.location.reload()
    }
    function regenerate2(){
    if (document.layers){
    setTimeout("window.onresize=regenerate",450)
    intializemarquee()
    }
    }
    
    function intializemarquee(){
    document.cmarquee01.document.cmarquee02.document.write('<nobr>'+marqueecontents+'</nobr>')
    document.cmarquee01.document.cmarquee02.document.close()
    thelength=document.cmarquee01.document.cmarquee02.document.width
    scrollit()
    }
    
    function scrollit(){
    if (document.cmarquee01.document.cmarquee02.left>=thelength*(-1)){
    document.cmarquee01.document.cmarquee02.left-=speed
    setTimeout("scrollit()",100)
    }
    else{
    document.cmarquee01.document.cmarquee02.left=marqueewidth
    scrollit()
    }
    }
    
    window.onload=regenerate2
    </script>
    
    
    <ilayer width=&{marqueewidth}; height=&{marqueeheight}; name="cmarquee01">
    <layer name="cmarquee02"></layer>
    </ilayer>

    How about saving the contents inside news.js(a javascript array or something) and include it via script tag?
