5.5. Animated Text
In what appears to be an effort to woo advertisers, Internet Explorer ad-
ded a form of animated text to HTML that all the popular browsers now
support. The animation is simpletext scrolling horizontally across the dis-
playbut effective for moving banners and other elements that readily and
easily animate an otherwise static document. On the other hand, like the
<blink> tag, animated text can easily become intrusive and abusive for
the reader. Use with caution, please, if at all.
5.5.1. The <marquee> Tag
The <marquee> tag defines the text that scrolls across the user's display.
The <marquee> tag is not a standard tag. For this reason alone, we do not
recommend that you use this extension.
