1) Script Title:neon lights

2) Script URL (on DD):http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex10/neontext.htm

3) Describe problem: Is there a way to control the delay time between cycles? Thanks in advance!

var flashspeed=100 //in milliseconds


change that number and will change the speed of the code

Thanks pissa, That works for controlling the speed of the effect.
I would really like to control the "pause" between cycles.
I tried changing this bit---
setTimeout(function(){cacheobj.beginneon();},1500); ---
but I see no effect.
Thanks for the reply, Mike

</h2>

changes are in bold.... i added a variable at the top so it can be automated, but i also bolded the place as well incase you had a different thought or you needed to customize it differently.

right now it is set to 2 seconds which is 1/2 a second longer between intervals then was in the script

Dude, you ROCK! That's exactly what I was looking for for.
And it works perfectly in Safari.
Thanks so much responding Pissa,
