The code for the moving text supplied in answer to a request from 'Seaview Flowers' posted 3 months ago, was just what I was looking for. But is there any way to make it move the text just a wee bit slower, as it's giving me a migraine!! Can any one help?

Wrap your code in <!-- for the start and --> at the end. Thanks :)

The code won't show up when i paste it here!! If you search 'moving/floating text', you will see the code in reply to 'Seaview Flowers question. I liked it because you can change the font style and colour to mirror your pages content. It was only the speed which I wished I could change.

Did you read my post below? Just insert the attribute scrollamount="10" and it will change the speed. Adjust the number to a speed you want.

Are you using the scrolling text html? Which goes like this

<marquee behavior="scroll" direction="left">The text here</marquee>

If so, just enter a scrollamount="x" into the code.

Change the number to which suits you. Here is an example at medium speed:

<marquee behavior="scroll" direction="left" scrollamount="10">The text here</marquee>

The lower the number the slower it goes and vice versa. So 1 is the slowest and 20 is very fast.

Thanks for that! Is there a way to change the text font on this too? I'm new to all this and trying to learn about computers as I go along, so please forgive me if it's something obvious I'm supposed to do!!
Cheers!

Like this:

<marquee direction="left" scrollamount="3" behavior="scroll" style="width: 300px; height: 15px; font-size: 15px;">Example Text</marquee>

Just change the 15 to whatever you want to.

Thanks, that certainly helped with the speed issue, it's just the font style, I'd like to change if possible. I'll try again to let you see the original code:-
<!--

<div align="center"><FONT face="georgia" color="#ffffff" size="+2">
<MARQUEE bgcolor="#31474B" direction="left" width="85%">
<STRONG>....'This is cool!</STRONG>
</MARQUEE></FONT></div>
-->

Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated

Sorry Alexander I had to run out, here is your code but fixed.

<marquee direction="left" scrollamount="3" behavior="scroll" style="width: 300px; height: 15px; color: #ffffff; font-size: 15px; font-family: Georgia; background-color: #031474;">Example Text</marquee>

Good luck. -->
