TEXT parameter details

Example:
<PARAM NAME="TEXT0" VALUE=
"|FONT=TimesRoman SIZE=14 STYLE=3 LINK=index.html TARGET= self START=ROLL END=BLAST|
Your text message here.">

Text can start with Font and link definitions between two "|" symbols (It can't be placed anywhere else except at the beginning of the text value). As you can see in the above example the definitions consist of name/value pairs separated with space character. If you don't specify some parameters, then the previous message settings will be used. If no previous settings were defined, then the defaults will be used. Pay attention, if you do not ensure that the parameters are set for the first to last text, then the defaults will be used for the first time. The first message to the last message settings will be used in further cycles. Each parameter, in text and link definitions, is independent, so you can include definitions for those parameters which you would like to change. In the table below you will find the complete list of parameters.
