Marquee Banners

The <MARQUEE> tag introduced by Microsoft did not gain acceptance as a standard. Consequently if you wish to have a cross-browser marquee on your site you have to make one yourself. Please feel free to modify the scripts on this page to meet your needs. Unlike Java, Javascript does not provide a fontmetrics object so it is necessary to experiment with the size of the <SPAN> tags to get the desired effect. Note: it is essential to define the <SPAN> width if you want the marquee to scroll off the screen, otherwise the text will wrap when it reaches the screen boundaries.

Text can move from left to right

.... or from right to left

.... or it can go both ways - like this one
