Blog Quote: CVS Directly Through Yahoo Finance

Example of Blog Quote in action: (mouse over the company names to get a current quote) This should not work because CSV data is requested from a third party website and access restrictions should prevent this. You should see access denied errors in a JavaScript alert window.
Blog Quote Sample Story
Mouse over the company names to see a near-realtime quote. In technology, Apple is an interesting company as is Dell, Yahoo and Pixar. Hovering over the company names triggers a back-end XML request that loads the quotes and shows them in a css configured span tag. Other companies you could try would be Level 3 or Sprint if you are into carriers.

Once to every man and nation,
comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth with falsehood,
for the good or evil side;
Some great cause,
some great decision,
offering each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever,
'twixt that darkness and that light.
Once to Every Man and Nation.mp3
~ James R. Lowell - 1845

"In our sleep, pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart and in our despair, against our will comes wisdom through the awful grace of God."
~ Aeschylus

"Some men see things as they are and ask 'Why?'. I dream of things things that never were and ask 'Why not?'"

"In dreams begin responsibilities."
~ U2

"... we do these things not because they are easy, but because they are hard!"
~ JFK - on sending man to the moon
