This CF has been updated to deal with the new API introduced with iOS 9.
Though this insert was done between <head> AND <style Tag:
<meta name=\"viewport\" content=\"initial-scale=1.0\" />¶

with changes with the Safari Webkit introduced with macOS Sierra AND iOS10, the Webticker was rendered in more than 1 Line.
With the current version of this CF, Text is embedded in no-line-break Tags (< nobr >) to keep it straight.
