Hello. Sorry for the delay in replying, I've been rather busy this last month and so took a leave of absence from h2g2.
I'm no expert on Marquee tags I'm afraid, as I'm one of those people who considers them a travesty of web design which should never have been invented, and yet another thing Microsoft have to answer for (although Netscape aren't blameless, they invented the Blink tag )
However, because I'm feeling kind and helpful, I looked it up. To change the speed, you need to use the SCROLLAMOUNT and SCROLLDELAY attributes of the marquee tag. SCROLLAMOUNT specifies how many pixels the thing inside the marquee moves each time it's updated, and SCROLLDELAY specifies how many milliseconds between updates. Thus to make it faster, use a low value for SCROLLDELAY, and, potentially, a high value for SCROLLAMOUNT.
High values of SCROLLAMOUNT will of course make it look jerky, but low values might not be fast enough for you.
An example might be:
for a fairly slow one.
