I'm not sure what texta is, but if it's like a marks-a-lot or sharpie, there is a product for gluing plexi-glass, it's called weld-on #3 or #4. It removes ink like that. Just soak it, it's very thin stuff, and blot with a paper towel. Do it over & over, till the ink is gone. You'll know if it's going to work, cause the first time u blot, the paper towel or tissue will have ink on it.

Try spraying (soaking) it with cheap hairspray then blotting it with several paper towels then repeating this several times.

Rubbing alcohol removes ink but you have to blot it, not rub, because if you rub it will make the stain larger.
