Weird webring code!

Strange bit of javascript expands to fill screen width

I'm rebuilding an existing site that is a member of three webrings. I'm trying to put the code for one of the webrings into the main links page, which is divided into two columns. (Yeah, I know ... tables ... webrings ... blah).

It is not a normal webring code that I've ever seen, something like A HREF=http://webring.com that links to a cgi and performs some actions. It's a little bit of strange javascript, and when I post it on our page, it expands to fill the whole screen width! When I tried to put it in one of the columns, it colored the column with ITS chosen colors, not ours, and expanded that column to fill the screen, destroying the other.

So, the client wants the webring on the links page, and I've moved it to the very bottom, where it takes up the entire width of the screen. The letters are huge, too.

Wasn't looking for a site review. I wondered what you should do if you're forced to include a piece of javascript that you can't see, that is hosted on another site. Thanks!

Have you mailed the script provider to ask about the problem, and to request a copy of the relevant script? If so, what was the response?
