  • Posting to the correct forum would help for a start ;-) You posted to the Expression Design forum, not Expression Web

    There was an old "marquee" tag but I don't believe that's part of the current HTML5 standard.

    The basic way, something like this:

    <marquee>This is basic example of marquee</marquee>

    Most users would probably find it annoying and it probably doesn't meet accessibility standards for the web.  Refer https://www.w3docs.com/learn-html/html-marquee-tag.html.

    There might be more modern methods, but nothing built into Expression Web (if that was your question...).

  • tk63, you really don't want to use this kind of element. It is considered both obsolete and deprecated by the w3c, and it incurs several usability and accessibility issues. It may behave unpredictably on small devices (phones, tablets, etc.), and no experienced Web developer will use this tag, so its appearance on a page is a sure sign of a newbie developer, unfamiliar with current Web standards. Avoid it.
