Chapter 12. Multimedia > Creating a Marquee

Creating a Marquee

A marquee is text that starts at one part of the screen and floats across to the left, rather like the messages that advertise sales in the window of a 24-hour gas station. Internet Explorer lets you put marquees on your Web page.

To create a marquee:

1.
Type <MARQUEE.

2.
If desired, type BEHAVIOR=type where type is scroll, for text that starts at one side of the screen and disappears off the other, slide for text that starts at one side of the screen and stops when it reaches the other, or alternate for text that starts at one side of the screen and bounces back when it reaches the other side.

3.
To determine which direction the text starts from, type DIRECTION=left or DIRECTION=right.

4.
If desired, type LOOP=n, where n is the number of times the text will pass across the screen. Use LOOP=infinite to have the text appear continuously.

5.
Type SCROLLAMOUNT=n to determine how much space, in pixels, is left between each pass of the text.

6.
Type SCROLLDELAY=n to determine how much time, in milliseconds, passes before the text scrolls again.

7.
Use the HEIGHT, WIDTH, HSPACE, VSPACE, ALIGN, and BGCOLOR attributes as usual, if desired.

8.
Type the final >.

9.
Type the scrolling text.

10.
Type </MARQUEE>.
