    A question about the <marquee> HTML command

    On my page, http://kiekie218.freewebsitehosting.com/premainpg, there is a REALLY long marquee statement! I was wondering if there's any way to control it (ie-speed, line cutoff, parallel lines, etc)

    try just dividing the sentence in half and putting in on 2 different lines both with the <marquee> flag.
    Just because you don\'t see it doesn\'t mean it\'s not there

    You can do a marquee with a different size and color font.
    You can even add a colored background.

    Here's the tags to do this with:

    <HTML>
    <FONT COLOR="DARKBLUE" SIZE="6">
    <MARQUEE BGCOLOR="ORANGE">
    This is really groovy!
    </MARQUEE>
    </FONT>
    </HTML>


    Speed :

    <HTML>
    <FONT COLOR="GREEN" SIZE="6">
    <MARQUEE SCROLLAMOUNT="1">
    This is scrollamount="1"
    </MARQUEE>
    </FONT>
    </HTML>



    Here's how to control the distance the marquee will travel across the screen.

    <HTML>
    <FONT COLOR="GREEN" SIZE="6">
    <MARQUEE WIDTH="50%">
    This is 50%
    </MARQUEE>
    </FONT>
    </HTML>


    You can control marquee behavior. This is how to do alternate behavior.

    <HTML>
    <FONT COLOR="DARKSLATEGRAY" SIZE="6">
    <MARQUEE BEHAVIOR="ALTERNATE">
    This is alternate behavior.
    <MARQUEE>
    </FONT>
    </HTML>


    or change directions?
    Let's do it like this:

    <HTML>
    <FONT COLOR="GREEN" SIZE="6">
    <MARQUEE DIRECTION="RIGHT">
    This is direction right.
    </MARQUEE>
    </FONT>
    </HTML>


    There is also a behavior slide?

    <HTML>
    <FONT COLOR="PURPLE" SIZE="6">
    <MARQUEE BEHAVIOR="SLIDE">
    This is behavior slide.
    </MARQUEE>
    </FONT>
    </HTML>

    To change it's direction to right, edit the line to :

    <MARQUEE BEHAVIOR="SLIDE" DIRECTION="RIGHT">


    See ya,

    Since when, exactly? Funny I cannot see them on the W3C's list of HTML 4.01 elements here?

    MARQUEE is, to the best of my knowledge, TOTALLY Microsoft IE Specific, not supported by any other browser, and a complete waste of time as it's entirely tasteless and makes sites look hideous.

    So in answer to the OP: Just don't use them, they will make IE users vomit at how hideous your site looks, and have no effect on anyone else.
