Just increase the height depending on the message and put <br><br> after each message. In this case it would look something like:

<script type="text/javascript">

//configure the below five variables to change the style of the scroller
var scrollerdelay='3000' //delay between msg scrolls. 3000=3 seconds.
var scrollerwidth='150px'
var scrollerheight='150px'
var scrollerbgcolor='lightyellow'
//set below to '' if you don't wish to use a background image
var scrollerbackground='scrollerback.gif'

//configure the below variable to change the contents of the scroller
var messages=new Array()
