    I have a need to include a line of scrolling text running across the page in an email.

    Also each point i want to 'hyperlink' to a web page.

    Can it be done and how?

    i think it depends on how you send ur e-mail, if u send it in html format, enter this code into the e-mail - <MARQUEE>scrolling text</MARQUEE> you can also add hyperlinks in it <MARQUEE>Scrolling <A HREF="link.htm">Link</A> text</MARQUEE>
    hope this helps

    The marquee code is not a standard code- HTML, not XHTML.

    But, you would want to use this:
    HTML:
    <marquee><a href="http://binarydreams.us/">Scroll me</a></marquee>

    I ment the marquee code is not XHTML compliant, if you put these tags into a proper XHTML marked document, it either will not work at all or not validate with the W3C validator.

    Plus in XHTML you can't use caps for anything.
