There are several different types of
marquee's that you can use. I will show you a number of examples. Keep in mind,
that marquee's will slow the animation of gifs considerably. When animated gifs
and marquee's are used together, both will run slower. Also, when two marquees
are placed to close together, they will drag considerably. I have used large
vertical spaces on this page to separate the marquees so that you may witness
their true effect. Keep scrolling down for all the examples. I should also
mention that WebTV and Microsoft's Internet Explorer both read marquee codes,
but they are ignored by the Netscape browser.
<marquee>This is a standard marquee</marquee>
behavior=alternate>This Will Bounce Back And Forth</marquee>
<marquee direction=right>This one scrolls to the
<marquee width="33%">Here you control the
<center><marquee width="33%">This is the same only
width="33%">The same marquee on the right</marquee>
scrollamount=7>This speed has been adjusted to a faster
You can add a scrollamount speed to any marquee
You can change font styles and colors using standard font commands,
but be sure that the <marquee> and the </marquee> are the tags
adjacent to the marquee text. Put all font commands prior to the <marquee>
tag, and put your </font> tag after the </marquee> tag. You can also
enclose your marquee in tables, as long as you follow the above rules concerning
the marquee tags.
Here is an example of a marquee enclosed wihin a
effect=emboss><hr><marquee behavior=alternate scrollamount=6
bgcolor=purple> ~ ~ ~ ~ Have Fun ! ~ ~ ~ ~ </marquee><hr>
is an example of marquee's being placed too closely together. Notice how slowly
they are moving.
marquee is actually two marquee codes side by side. Here is the code that will
make this work.
color=cyan effect=emboss><b><marquee width=50% behavior=slide
direction=right scrollamount=10>WELCOME TO MY</marquee><marquee
width=50% behavior=slide scrollamount=10> HOME
