    A client of mine wants the value of their stocks live along the top of their website because it is listed on the TSX. anyone have any ideas? hehe

    Do you know of any web sites that provide the information, perhaps via XML or RSS? I've seen some API in the past that give you a way to interact and retrieve the stock info, but you have to have a resource first.

    Quotemedia can do it, but there is a fee involved. I don't think anyone can do it live though, there is always a 15-20 minute delay.

    It doesn't look like the site has any handy feeds to grab it from. You could use PHP to parse the page every so often and grab out that information, but you would likely need do some custom script for it. There may be stuff out there that gives you a starting point though.
