I have the following code used to create a scrolling marquee:

<script type="text/javascript">
//scrolling marquee
	var tWidth='595px';                  // width (in pixels)
	var tHeight='15px';                  // height (in pixels)
	var tcolour='#ffffff';               // background colour:
	var moStop=false;                     // pause on mouseover (true or false)
	var fontfamily = 'arial,sans-serif'; // font for content
	var tSpeed=5;                        // scroll speed (1 = slow, 5 = fast)
	var content='ajslkdfj hkjlashd ahsjfhasl dfjajsd ;fasidjf ahsdjfhajsd gjhaj jhjkahsdfg ajslkdfj hkjlashd ahsjfhasl dfjajsd ;fasidjf ahsdjfhajsd gjhaj jhjkahsdfg';
	var cps=tSpeed; 
	var aw, mq, mq2; 
	var fsz = parseInt(tHeight)-4; 
	function startticker(){
		if (document.getElementById) {
			var tick = '<div style="position:relative;width:'
			if (moStop) tick += ' onmouseover="cps=0" onmouseout="cps=tSpeed"'; 
			tick +='><div id="mq" style="position:absolute;left:0px;top:0px;font-family:'
				+fsz+'px;white-space:nowrap;"><\/div><div id="mq2" style="position:absolute;left:0px;top:0px;font-family:'
			document.getElementById('ticker').innerHTML = tick; 
			mq = document.getElementById("mq"); 
			mq2 = document.getElementById("mq2");
			mq2.style.left = (parseInt(tWidth)+10)+"px";
			mq.innerHTML='<span id="tx">'
			mq2.innerHTML='<span id="tx2">'
			aw = document.getElementById("tx").offsetWidth; 
			pause = setTimeout('lefttime=setInterval("scrollticker()",50)', 1200);
	function scrollticker(){
		mq.style.left = (parseInt(mq.style.left)>(-10 - aw)) /*|| (parseInt(mq2.style.left)>(-aw + 500))*/ ?parseInt(mq.style.left)-cps+"px" : parseInt(tWidth)+10+"px";//alert(aw + " " + parseInt(mq2.style.left));// parseInt(tWidth)+10+"px" //parseInt(tWidth)+10+"px";
		mq2.style.left = (parseInt(mq.style.left)<(-aw + 500)) && (parseInt(mq.style.left)>(-10-aw)) ?parseInt(mq2.style.left)-cps+"px" : parseInt(tWidth)+10+"px" //parseInt(tWidth)+10+"px";

<body style="background: #000000">
<div align="center">
<div id="ticker">
Everything is working fine with this except now I would like to have the text continue to scroll instead of having a long blank space. I added the second mq to accomplish this. I scrolls correctly until about halfway through the second scroll it blanks out and starts over. I know I probably need something in the mq.style.left = and mq2.style.left = lines but just cant figure it out. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
