    for (var i=0; i<position; i++)
    {out += msg.charAt(i)}
    for (i=1;i<jumpSpaces;i++)
    {out += " "}
    out += msg.charAt(position)
    window.status = out
    if (jumpSpaces <= 1) {
    position++
    if (msg.charAt(position) == ' ')
    {position++ }

    {jumpSpaces *= .75}
    else
    {jumpSpaces--}
    if (position != msg.length) {
    var cmd = "snapIn(" + jumpSpaces + "," + position + ")";
    scrollID = window.setTimeout(cmd,5);
    } else {
    scrolling = false

    function snapSetup() {
    if (scrolling)
      if (!confirm('Re-initialize snapIn?')) return false
    killScroll = true
    scrolling = true
    var killID = window.setTimeout('killScroll=false',6)
    scrollID = window.setTimeout('snapIn(100,0)',10)
