I realize that there are ways to implement this functionality already using
CSS positioning and JavaScript timeouts, but do you suppose that there could
be a way to specify a scrolling property for text elements such as P, H1,
H2, H3, H4, H5, and H6?

For example:

H1{text-marquee: left, 94%, 6%, 6px, -1;}

Where the first property is direction, the second and third properties are
start and end points from the element that surrounds it (usually body, div,
span, or table row), the 4th property is how many units per second (for this
I have pixels), and the last property is the number of times to scroll the
text element (any negative number for continuous, 0 for never, and 1 and up
for specific numbers of times to scroll the text element).
