marquee is not an official part of HTML. Microsoft made it up, but it is not even part of the HTML spec.

I'd really say wontfix. Marquee as a major "don't ever use"

I vote for wontfix too. Apart from the fact it is non-standard, it is now rarely used anyways.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

As mentioned above marquee is an extension of IE. Moreover it isn't a part of HTML specification and it isn't used very often so it's a wontfix.
