Only after loading by using the javascript bookmarklet:

javascript:els=document.getElementsByTagName('marquee');for
(i=0;i<els.length;i++)
alert(els[i].outerHTML=els[i].outerHTML.replace('MARQUEE','span'));void 0

Yes.

Only with javascript bookmarklet: (Likely works in Mozilla etc.)
javascript:els=document.getElementsByTagName('marquee');for
(i=0;i<els.length;i++)
alert(els[i].scrollDelay=els[i].scrollDelay*3);void 0

(slows it down by a factor of 3 on each activation.)
Jim.
