Using the <marquee> tag
Author: Jim Stiles

Here is a list of the property attributes that can be associated with the marquee tag.

HEIGHT="----" denotes height of the marquee. Do it in percentage of the screen height.
WIDTH="----" denotes width of the marquee. Do it in percentage of the screen width.
ALIGN="----" top, left, or middle in the marquee banner.
DIRECTION="----" left or right. That's where the text comes from. Right is default.
BEHAVIOR="----" "scroll" is default, "slide" has the text come in and stop, "alternate" makes the text come from both sides every other time.
HSPACE="----" tells the marquee how much space to leave on each side of the text. Denote this in pixels.
VSPACE="----" denotes the top and bottom space before the text. Do this in pixels.
SCROLLAMOUNT="----" tells the browser how much space between successive scrolls. Do this in pixels.
SCROLLDELAY="----" denotes the number of milliseconds (thousands) between each scroll.
