The flashing text feature only works in Mozilla-based Browsers, like Netscape and Firefox.

It won't work in Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers.

I see it changing colors in IE.

It is netscape that does not view flashing text....
it never did...

I should have said above it was not the norm in the early netscape browsers to use flashing but newer versions do
however netscape browsers always supported the blinking text attribute that is with-in blink tags and IE does not....

if you used some sort of macromedia flash technique it would work in all browsers that have flash plug-ins...
or there could be text decoration script out there that could be browser friendly...

and also java scriptes that will do this....
do a google search for 'flashing text java script'

I see that you are using java script for your changing color text.
your visitors might be viewing your page with settings not to view java scripting set for their browsers and they will not see the changing colors

also it is not viewable in my netscape browser 7.0 so your script is not netscape fiendly you would have to find a java script that is all browser friendly...
