Sliding Panel

I implemented a sliding panel where users could click a link and see links to FAQs.  I was able to implement it in just a few minutes using this awesome demo and tutorial by John Phillips:

Sliding panels are a great way to save space on pages, yet make info or a form easily available to your users (with no page refresh).

Scrolling Text

I wanted to scroll some text and came across two options:

using java:

with html:

I ended up using html since it was easier and less to load on page load.
