2006-04-18 01:11:42 Holly I was just wondering if there was a way to change the size of the scrolling text. Thanks.
2006-04-18 07:31:32 eDave In example 12 above the font size has been increased with the <font size=+3> tag
2006-06-05 13:43:49 Annie I'm making a marquee with only pictures. I was wondering if there was a way that I could make it so they repeat without any breaks between the first and last images.
Thank you.
