You can do the same without JS, but with a CSS3 animation

@-moz-keyframes blink { 0% { opacity: 1; } 50% { opacity: 1; } 50.1% { opacity: 0; } 100% { opacity: 0; } }
blink { -moz-animation: blink 1s infinite linear; }

(Warning, untested, may also wreak havoc with original blink tag).

Here is a combination of the two…

<dont’t blink> ~ Beware the Weeping Angels !


#5

But what about scrolling text in the status bar?

(also I’d like to point out that html entities aren’t parsed in the “Reply to” box subject line)


#6

Maybe we should add ‘text-decoration: none;’ so the original ‘text-decoration: blink;’ will not intermingle.


#7

Please keep in mind that blinking blocks of text can induce seizures, the usual rule of thumb is to not blink more than three times a second. The W3C has more information.

I am put in mind of a discussion I read recently about how to use JavaScript to blur the text on a website. Eeeeeeeevil.
