David, 
you may be 15 and working in HTML, XHTML, XML etc. Good to know that and I
appreciate your talent.
I have been working on Oracle technologies and just stared on the web side.
So stupid as it may sound to you, may not do so to others. I believe the
grown up issue should be addressed by you more than me. Sorry if I sound
rude, but then you need to be more considerate to the newbees rather than
boasting your talent and cutting them off. It will take some time for me to
get to the latest technologies and you should appreciate my efforts.
 
Now getting over that, thanks for the information you provided. I still
would like to know if my question could be resolved in HTML only. If you
guys out there consider this to be "off-topic", I will take this offline.

rgds
amar

line")


Summary: Microsoft's MARQUEE tag deserves to die.

That was a very stupid (in other W3C-official words, "off-topic") question.
W3C's HTML Working
Group has moved past the browser war conflicts and developed new markup
standards for use on the
web, and <MARQUEE>, <BLINK>, <LAYER>, and a few others didn't make the much
needed cut.  Sorry if
I sound rude, but you need to grow up.  I'm only 15 and I even use valid
XHTML 1.1 and CSS and am
learning XML.  This isn't the 90's anymore.

Thanks for listening,
David Bindel (chaosdb@yahoo.com)
