Marquee tag in HTML for scrolling text

HTML provides a special feature which enables us to display scrolling and animated text in the Web page. This tag is supported by Internet Explorer , Firefox and Netscape 7 and above. Netscape has its blink tag which blinks text placed inside this tag, but Internet Explorer does not support blink tag.

We can use marquee tag to scroll text or image in different directions. The text placed inside the marquee tag will start scrolling horizontally across the screen or the web page.

Usually scrolling texts are used to give messages or display some special announcements to the visitors. Using this we can make some part of the text stand out than others. Over time as content became important the uses of animation reduced in last some years.
