Google AJAX RSS feed wizard
Modifying the appearance of output.

I've used the Google AJAX RSS feed wizard to create javascript code for my site.

When I look at the scrolling feed output it shows my blog entry's title, the author and date of the blog, and then part of the first line of text from the blog entry.

The text from the first line of the blog seems to be on the order of 120 characters or so. Is there a way to change this so it shows more characters?

Is this something controlled by the RRS javascript in the html of the pages on my website or is it controlled by the RSS feed output of the blog?

I haven't used that tool before. They do have Google AJAX Feed API [google.com] documentation. There are several styling elements listed there that I assume could be changed to customize the length of the output.
