News ticker

I am trying to adapt the News Ticker from the tutorials section to display headlines from the bbc’s technology feed, but when i change the url in the code from

xmlData.load(“”+new Date().getTime());


xmlData.load(“”+new Date().getTime());

I just get the BBC main headline flashing continuously and it doesn’t cycle through the actual news items.

I think this has something to do with how the xml is being parsed, but have so far been unable to get it right. any help would be greatly appreciated.
