HTML Marquee & its alternatives


A brief look into the HTML Marquee & its alternatives.


Simple example
<marquee>Test Message</marquee>

Refer Further Reading section for more details about Marquee Tag.

BTW you know how to stop & continue the animation of the Marquee? Check here.
<marquee onmouseover="this.stop();"  önmouseout="this.start();">Test Message</marquee>

  • Not a standard one.
  • It's an annoying one.
  • Very limited styles


We may use JavaScript(or jQuery) to create alternatives for Marquee. Here are a couple of alternatives.
