I am using the Newsticker in the Content King template using Joomla articles. There is some problem with how it is displaying,  Can you please take a look?

Hello

It looks like there is some extra code in there for the articles.  For example I see the following for the first article which looks like its causing the display issues

Code:
<p 3-new-toll-collection-system-at-tappan-zee-bridge"="" news="" style="margin-bottom: 15px; direction: ltr; font-family: Georgia, Century, Times, serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 21px; border: 0px; vertic...</a> </li> <li> <a href=">New Toll Collection System at Tappan Zee Bridge: </p>

I would try stripping the text at an earlier number (you can change this in the module admin area under the Joomla article settings) so that this stuff gets cut off and doesn't mess up the layout like it is.

Thanks. I removed the funky HTML and set the strip text value lower. It appears to be working now.
