    Marquee not supported by Firefox!

    Hi there,

    Can anyone tell me, about why the marquee not supported by Firefox! It displays the height of the marquee but it takes the full length of the text on the page which breaks the page.... If someone has tried the marquee on firefox... and has found the solutions.... please post it

    marquee is a proprietary HTML tag created by Microsoft and is not valid. If you use a doctype Firefox will ignore it as invalid code.

    Um, nope, Firefox supports <marquee> fine in standards mode.

    Don't use the width and height attributes within the tag. Instead, use styling to apply width, height and "position: relative" to the marquee.

    In my tests Firefox 2 ignored the width set within the tag. It also didn't like the height set within the tag when the text is supposed to scroll up or down. The "position: relative" style isn't always necessary, but when it is you'll know it by the defined edges of the marquee not being the same as the scrolling text, or because you can't see any text at all.
