Oh, God, no! Please don't allow your client to use blinking text. It is undoubtedly THE most annoying feature on any Web page--distracting and hard to read.

I read recently that mosr Net surfers use slow modems, and many of them don't even view graphics. Up until recently I was one of these people, and it was the worst thing to wait five minutes for a page to load, only to be greeted with blinking text. Using Javascript to get that effect would irritate slow modem users even more.

I think you'd be doing your client a favor by telling him that the blink command doesn't work for all browsers.

Ian
