What's the marque tag, Guru?



Two hot dogs, a six pack and a PPV or Wrestling tape. What more could a guy possibly need?!?!

It makes text scroll across the screen in Internet Explorer. It doesn't work in Netscape or iCab, so I doubt it's been annoying Chris - but I'm sick of it.

It adds nothing to the content of the board, and is visually disturbing - so it's gone.

Amen to that.

The Marquee tag should so in the same scrapped HTTP protocol as the Sacramento Kings line break. :)

Well, if we can't annoy him with marquee, maybe we should try this instead? =P

Heh, indeed. Marquees don't show up in Netscape, and blinking text doesn't show up in Internet Explorer. Why? I have no idea. Maybe someone else knows...

well sir...

the marquee tag thing was a proprietary creation of microsoft, not part of the actual W3C HTML 4.0, 4.1 or XHTML 1.0 standards (and as far as I know, it ain't part of the 3.x standards either).

The blink tag (along with the font tag and a bunch of other tags) were created by netscape, but due to the frequent use of the font tag, it was included as part of the HTML 3.x specifications, and HTML 4.x Transitional (can't be used in HTML 4.x strict or XHTML 1.0). I think the blink tag may have become part of the HTML 3.x specifications, but if it was, it was dropped completely in the 4.x specifications (even the transitional one, which allows for damn near everything).

proprietary html tags are evil (says the mozilla user).

Wasn't me this time! I have a hunch on what it might be, though...I'll keep an eye open and see if I need to edit something. EDIT: It's fixed. I never noticed the problem myself because Firefox was good enough to ignore the bad HTML.
