The spec does not mention <marquee loop>, but in my ad-hoc testing Opera and
Firefox support it. It seems to originally be a proprietary IE invention,
described in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms534135(v=vs.85).aspx

While of course it should be invalid, the spec should say that loop="foo" is
equivalent to marquee-loop: foo in CSS, see
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-box/#marquee-loop

(This would mean that loop is a boolean attribute on <audio> and <video> but a
numeric attribute on <marquee>, which is why I noticed the absence of <marquee
loop> to begin with.)
