My example wasn't intended to present <marquee> as a good thing, only to say 
that considering time values in CSS Stylings would provide something similar, 
just to provide an example most people would be familiar with. Also, the marquee 
effect is still available in CSS3; it is an overflow mechanism. See 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-box-20021024/#marquee

If this effect is under CSS control, users may be able to set their own personal 
styles to eliminate or slow this feature, turning a negative into a positive.
