    How do I make my text blink?

    I tried to search and put this

    .alert { color: red; text-decoration: blink; }

    but, it doesn't work. But text-decoration: underline works. How do I make my text blink? Thanks.

    You have the right code, but this only works with Opera and Mozzila browsers.

    Why on earth would you want to! Makes a page look dreadful and very dated.

    Because I'm using it as a reminder text. When user select something, a reminder text blinks. Since IE doesn't support blink, I guess I will just use red color for that reminder text.

    If I see something blinking on a site, I get out of there in less than a second.

    If you really want the dated look, why not use good ol'

    Code:
    <blink>WOO I'M BLINKING</blink>
    and for that real 90's look

    Code:
    <marquee>LOOK AT ME SCROLL! GO ME!</marquee>
    I swear to drunk I'm not God.

    Ye gads, my ever lovin' eyes. Ended up on a website last week where someone had discovered blink, only they missed the closing tag, and the whole page was blinking. I really needed to read what was on the page and ended up cutting and pasting to notepad just so I could read it.

    As a very short reminder like you want, it would probably be ok. I would go with some sort of change in background/foreground colors on the .alert class myself and leave it at that.

    Why not just go with a fat border around the text? Draws attention, and doesn't give fits.
