    Unhappy Problem with Javascript random-text marquee >:(

    Hi all - im having a problem with the following code:

    Code:
    var r_text = new Array ();
    r_text[0] = "Example 1";
    r_text[1] = "Example 2";
    r_text[2] = "Example 3";
    r_text[3] = "Example 4";
    r_text[4] = "Example 5";
    r_text[5] = "Example 6";
    r_text[6] = "Example 7";
    r_text[7] = "Example 8";
    r_text[8] = "Example 9";
    
    var i = Math.floor(9*Math.random());
    
       {
       document.write("<MARQUEE SCROLLAMOUNT=10><b><FONT-FAMILY:‘Calibri’>><FONT-SIZE: 14pt><FONT COLOR='#FFFF00'>" +
       r_text[i] + "</FONT></FONT-SIZE></font-family></b></MARQUEE>");
       }
    Whenever i try and input it into any website developement program - yes, it works perfectly, but for some very frustrating reason rather than font be Calibri, or Arial, or whatever i input - it always comes out as Georgia in my browser, Firefox, and Times in IE and Opera. I really really really don't understand why the font refuses to change, whereever i put it.

    Hopefully somebody here can tell me whats up?

    Thanks in advance! Joe

    I'm almost sure the font tag has been deprecated. Use a style tag in your marquee
