    You again :D

    I forgot that you could do the blicking text in the older version.
    There was a lot of things you could with email in the older versions I liked that you can't in 7. :( I like the way you had all the fonts to pick from and how big you could make them with 4.x :)
    But it has to be code so maybe your have to do it in your own.
    OK I did it in netscape 4 and looked at the source code and got this.
    Used the word blinking.
    <blink><font size=+2>blinking</font></blink></html>

    Hay Dan I got it to work so I just learned something new. :)
    I went up to insert and then down to HTML and used the code above.

    But right now any thing I type in the message is also blinking. :eek:
    I have not found out yet how to keep the blinking to just the one word.
    Maybe others that know html code can help you out.

    OK I think I got it now.
    I did this before and it did not work but after closing messager and oping it up again and doin the same thing it worked.

    Use this code here.
    <blink><font size=+2>blinking</font></blink>

    I guess the </html> made everything blink.

    I am grateful for small things:)
    Luckily that isn't a standard HTML tag and does not work in IE:D

    From closing the html box when you click insert?
    Don't know why but it works ok for me.

    I have the java turned off for email and newsgroups but I don't know if that would have anything to do with it.
