Html Marquees

Hello dear readers! welcome back to another section of my tutorial on Html. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the Html Marquees.

A Html marquee is a scrolling piece of text displayed either horizontally across or vertically down your web page depending on the settings. This is created using Html <marquees> tag.

Note: The Html <marquees> tag may not be supported by different web browsers so it is not recommended to rely on this tag, instead you can use Javascript and Css in creating such effects.



The syntax for using the Html <marquee> tag is as follows:

<marquee  attribute_name="attribute_value".....more attributes>   
     One or more lines or text message or image

The marquee Tag Attributes
