Although above we have discussed building a static text file to hold the data, the content can also be supplied by
a server side script (eg. PHP, ASP, JSP or Perl etc). This opens the possibility for the data to be dynamically loaded
from data held within a database.
Such a server side script may be constructed in any language of your choice. The only requirement is that the output
of the script provides the content in the format described above.
This opens up many possibilities for producing dynamic content. A script can be written to acquire data from virtually
any data source, process the data and even generate content based upon session data (ie. a user ID).
To configure the Advanced Sliding Text Applet to acquire the data from your own server side script simply set the "data"
parameter to the URL pointing to your script. eg.
<param name="data" value="http://www.yourdomain.com/data.php">
