Add the following HTML markup within the body of your HTML document.

<div id="dnews" class="news-wrapper">
<div class="news"></div>
</div>

The above HTML markup is for rss driven news. If you want to enter the news manually or from your own source e.g. databse, then you need to follow the HTML markup format given below.

<div id="snews" class="news-wrapper">
<div class="news">
<div class="headline">
                <a title="This is the detail about first news" href="#">This is the first headline.</a></div>
<div class="headline">
                <a title="This is the detail about second news" href="#">
This is the second headline.</a></div>
<div class="headline">
                <a title="This is the detail about third headline" href="#">
This is the third headline.</a></div>
</div>
</div>

Add the following script in the head section of your HTML document for rss driven news.

<script type="text/javascript">
    google.load("feeds", "1");
     $(document).ready(function() {
     $('#dnews').dnews({ feedurl:'http://www.dawn.com/rss', showdetail: true, controlsalwaysvisible: false });
     });
 </script>
