I'm not a webmaster...hence the user name!
I just maintain the website for my non-profit club because no one knew what to do or wanted to do it. www.medinacountyohc.com I just reworked the entire site (still working on few pages) and wanted to put a scrolling marquee on it but found that of course stupid AOL won't allow people to see it. I know VERY little if nothing about programming, so I use a sitebuilder and some code (enough to get in trouble!) to do what I want. Did an archive search but not really sure what I should search for other than "AOL and Marquee". On my end it looks way cool and the vendors who donated to our club think so too...but of course people still use AOL...why, I don't know! Help please...

I used HTML code for the marquee which is obviously not going to work so everyone can see it. It is set as a gallery of objects scrolling right to left with a mouseover stop/start and click on object to link to each vendor site. Can anyone tell me what I need to do as far as code to make this visible for everyone?

Partial code below...I took out some of the middle vendors so it wasn't so long, but the beginning and end are there.



<marquee bgcolor="D5E3EE" direction="left" behavior="scroll" scroll="continuous" scrollamount="6" vspace="1" hspace="1" align="center" width="600" height="30" style="font-size:16px;color:194B5E;font-family:Arial;border:1px D5E3EE solid;font-weight:bold>
<marquee scrollamount="4" onmouseover="this.scrollAmount=0" onmouseout="this.scrollAmount=6">

the only way i know of making this work across all browsers would be to use Javascript. You could google search javascript marquee and there will be hundreds of examples. But then this would rely on users having javascript installed. Thus stopping some users seeing the marquee and putting you right back at square one. Your probably best to go with static text unless 100% nescessary.

Another way to make it work is to have a gif animation which does the scrolling.

I see some nonstandard tags in your code, which don't work in all browsers.
