    MARQUEE tag (Mozilla Firefox 0.8)

    Hey Mark!!!

    I got part of it to work in Moz!! Now to figure out how to get the banner color back behind the marquee!! I have been trying to get this accomplished for several months and was never on target with it! Without your "kick in the pants", I would still be "messin' "!! <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    The other item I have really wanted to accomplish is getting the "music" to play in Moz without having to actually click on the link. I know (or I think?) that it can be done, but my coding just isn't doing it! If you have any suggestions for that - I am all "ears"!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: MARQUEE tag (Mozilla Firefox 0.8)

    Skitter, I moved this branch of the original thread to this forum because it seemed better suited here. (For more context read the original thread.)

    A little history first. The <marquee> tag originated in Internet Explorer and is only supported by it and now the Mozilla browsers (Mozilla/Netscape 7 and Firefox). Microsoft has documented this tag exhaustively at this MSDN page. You cannot depend on it to render properly anywhere else, so with that in mind, here's how you can make it work on these two platforms.

    The following common elements are supported:
    <UL><LI>WIDTH: how wide the marquee is
    <LI>HEIGHT: how tall the marquee is
    <LI>DIRECTION: which direction the marquee should scroll
    <LI>BEHAVIOR: what type of scrolling
    <LI>SCROLLDELAY: how long to delay between each jump
    <LI>SCROLLAMOUNT: how far to jump
    <LI>LOOP: how many times to loop
    <LI>BGCOLOR: background color
    <LI>HSPACE: horizontal space around the marquee
    <LI>VSPACE: vertical space around the marquee[/list]You should specify a width for the element or it will give you unexpected results - such as the squished look you currently are seeing in Mozilla. In fact, it's always a good idea to specify width and height attributes on elements that support them (such as tables, graphics, etc) so that the result on the end user's screen is predictable and does not rely on the browser to interpret the layout. I'm a control freak and rely heavily on CSS to define attributes like height, width, and others, because I can be somewhat assured that the end result will be what I planned on it looking like!

    I will answer your question about background sounds separately because it's that much of an issue on its own. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
