Hi,
I have no experience in JavaScript but I have the following code for a scrolling news box. How would I:
(a) change the color of the text and the link?
(b) have the text vertically centered? (it appears at the top right now)
(c) add a border to the box?
Thank you for your help!

=================(code below)=======================

var scrollerdelay='3000' //delay between msg scrolls. 3000=3 seconds.
var scrollerwidth='165px'
var scrollerheight='60px'
var scrollerbgcolor=''
//set below to '' if you don't wish to use a background image
var scrollerbackground='wolf.gif'

//configure the below variable to change the contents of the scroller
var messages=new Array()
messages[0]="<font face='Arial'><a href=''>Sign-Up for the Next Build!</a></font>"
messages[1]="<font face='Arial'><a href=''>Penny War Begins in 2005</a></font>"

(a) change the color of the text and the link?

(c) add a border to the box?
Thank you for your help!



A)
for all links:
<style>
a:hover {color:lime}
a:link {color:blue}
</style>
for specific link color adjust
<a onmouseover="this.style.color='lime'" onmouseout="this.style.color='gold'" style="color:white">~#~</a>
for text
<font color=tan>~#~$</font>


B)
text-align:center center
not sure if it'll do vertical alignments, though....
C)
in style tag or tylesheet (see above):
border-
[left/right/top/bottom]-
[color/width/style]:
[aColor/aNumber/solid,double,dotted,dashed,ridge,groove,inset,ORoutset];
choose one thing in the brackets for each adjustment ex.:
border-left-color:blue;border-top-style:ridge
or combine 'em ex.:
border-right:groove 3px white;border-top-width:7px

if width doesn't work, try size
