Blinking Text

I am using the blinking text function located at this site:

http://javascript.internet.com/text-effects/blinking-text.html

It works but I need to seperate the parts of the text that are blinking. For Instance, I have a message that says

                                             *****Stop*****

                      There is a problem please do not log into the system.

The problem is that the entire text blinks and I just need the stop to blink. The code that I am using is below.

div id="prem_hint" style="position:relative; left:0; visibility:hidden" class="prem_hint">
<font color="#FF0000"><b><div align=center>*****STOP*****</b></font>
</div>
<script language="javascript">Blink('prem_hint');</script>
<b><div align=center></div> <br>
 
<font color = "red"><b> There is a problem please do not log into the system. <b></b>

Try like this instead:
div id="prem_hint" style="position:relative; left:0; visibility:hidden" class="prem_hint">
<font color="#FF0000"><b><div id="prem_hint_stop" align=center>*****STOP*****</div></b></font>
<script language="javascript">Blink('prem_hint_stop');</script>
<b><div align=center></div> <br>
<font color = "red"><b> There is a problem please do not log into the system. <b></b>

This seems to work fine with the exception of

If i leave off the < from the begining of your code, I get this line on my page although it blinks correctly

div id="prem_hint" style="position:relative; left:0; visibility:hidden" class="prem_hint">

If i add the < like

<div id="prem_hint" style="position:relative; left:0; visibility:hidden" class="prem_hint">

It completely takes away all of the text.

Sorry that was a type-o and I forgot to move the visibility:hidden style.
<div id="prem_hint" style="position:relative; left:0;" class="prem_hint">
<font color="#FF0000"><b><div id="prem_hint_stop" style=" visibility:hidden;" align=center>*****STOP*****</div></b></font>
<script language="javascript">Blink('prem_hint_stop');</script>
<b><div align=center></div> <br>
<font color = "red"><b> There is a problem please do not log into the system. <b></b>
