    Default Text animations "The Matrix" Text effect IE

    Richard Womersley created a very nice DHTML it says it requirers little introduction, this creative DHTML script renders The Matrix effect on any short piece of text! Works in both IE4+ and NS6+, and downgrades well with the rest. Yes what will they think of next?

    I have been trying to add my family information to this script but I am having some serious problems doing this, I am trying to put into the effect ( Lee and Manilvee Askew Family Tree) This is not working well, I need some help badly. I am completely new to this, The script is listed below:


    Step 1: Insert the below into the <HEAD> section of your page:


    <style type="text/css">
    .matrix { font-family:Lucida Console, Courier, Monotype; font-size:10pt; text-align:center; width:10px; padding:0px; margin:0px;}
    </style>

    <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">

    <!--
    var rows=11; // must be an odd number
    var speed=50; // lower is faster
    var reveal=2; // between 0 and 2 only. The higher, the faster the word appears
    var effectalign="default" //enter "center" to center it.

    Having done this, simply insert the below DIV tag where you want the effect to appear on your page:

    <div id="matrix">Dynamic Drive</div>

    What's left, liberation of man kind?

    The text under the script:

    STEP 2: Place a <div> element with ' id="matrix" ' on your web-page containing the text you wish enter the matrix. For example:

    <div id="matrix">MATRIX Re-Scripted</div>
