Keep attention on above marquee code, In which you will see some code like behaviour=”scroll” this attribute scroll string or text with consistency. Slightly ahead, you will see bgcolor=”yellow” using for background colour, hope you already familiar with background colour attribute. Slightly ahead, you will see onmouseover=”this.stop();” It does stop scroll the text when someone else take cursor over the text or string. Next is onmouseover=”this.start();” It does starts scroll the text when someone else take out cursor over the text.
