Marquee is one of those lowest-common-denominator ideas, like those 
scrolling shop signs. I read much faster than they scroll, and they're never 
scrolled at the start when I look at one. Step one is to wait for it to 
revert to the beginning, before you can tediously wait for it to get anywhere.

If you want an overflow mechanism for small screens, marquee is definitely 
not it.
