This snippet of code restores the <blink> tag's effect


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 !

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)

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

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.

You are evil, evil people.


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

You are evil, evil people.
