Okay, I am trying to put in a one-line scrolling marquee on a page [i am using dreamweaver] but the text I want to scroll is really long so it text wraps and makes the cell 3 lines instead of just one. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I just tried the code you posted here...I couldn't reproduce your problem. I even added like 15 lines of text to the marquee. The marquee doesn't ever wordwrap. My guess is you've got something screwy in the way your table is set up. You may try reducing the height of your marquee??? I don't know w/out being about to reproduce the problem I don't know what to tell you.

well, i guess it must be something wrong with my software or something like that because i think it works right sometimes and other times it doesn't.
