    Neither of these questions is important enough to warrant you forsaking your morning bicycle-ride.
    I have read a million disclaimers about how banner ads are annoying, don't work in some browsers, are about to be dropped etc.


    I was experimenting with the marquee tag (On becoming a household name (banner ads)) and am curious to know if/how it is possible, once the loop has ended, to have the marquee text&image remain on the screen.

    The attached example works in Firefox 3.0.10.
    It scrolls (in mirrored directions) 3 times, and then the screen is left blank.
    I'd like the cute image and contact details to remain visible once the animation was ended.

    Further question: (My HTML tag experience is close to nil).
    Why does the "right" marquee deliver my telephone number, but the "left" does not?
    This results in the scroll being unsynchronized.
    If it worked in harmony I could call this "When brains collide".

    Try this Chris

    It has a mixture of styles and removal of some attributes. It is a depricated tag so will not work in the ever efficient FF [evilgrin] However this one (sort of) works in IE.

    Take a look and see

    Thanks, Jezza.
    It's still raining here, so bicycling is "off".
    I played around with your code, testing in IE, even putting Loop "3" in there, but wasn't all that happy messing around with your gurunic html.
    I did, however, steal your idea of behavior="slide" which solves my main problem - that of having the marquee content remain visible after display.

    Turns out that the text has to be the last element within the ,marquee> body.
    I've dropped the idea of "When Brains Collide"; I'll wait until it comes out on VCR.


    Code:
    Some lead in text
    <marquee 
    behavior="slide"
    scrollamount="5"
    scrolldelay="100"
    bgcolor="blue"
    direction="left"
    width="500"
    height="10"
    loop="2"
    hspace="10"
    vspace="10"

    If it's any consolation Chris, none of the above solutions work in Opera 10
