try using this javascript, instead of marquee.. you can set the scroll delay here.


<html>
 <head>
  <title>scrolling text with JavaScript and forms</title>
  <script>

message = "This is a scrolling marquee message.";
initial_delay = 0;
scroll_delay = 75;
max_indent = 50;

function scroll ()
{
    message =   message . substring (1, message . length)
              + message . substring (0, 1);
    document . scrollbox_form . scrollbox . value = message;
    window . setTimeout ("scroll ()", scroll_delay);
}

function start_scroll ()
{
    for (var i = 1; i <= max_indent; i ++)
        message = " " + message;
    scrollbox = document . scrollbox_form . scrollbox;
    window . setTimeout ("scroll ()", initial_delay);
}

  </script>
 </head>
 <body onLoad="start_scroll ();">
  This text appears above the marquee.
  <form name=scrollbox_form>
   <input type=text name=scrollbox size=25>
  </form>
  This text appears below the marquee.
 </body>
</html>
