I have a marquee

<MARQUEE onmouseover=this.stop() onmouseout=this.start()
scrollAmount=1 scrollDelay=60 direction=up width="99%"
height=230>

the problem is that in firefox it is making the collumn with the marquee as long as the marquee would be if it wasn't scrolling. in i.e it works properly

any ideas??

you can see what I mean at www. jerusa lem vibe .net
(obviously without the spaces above in the url)

no the text is dynamic so I can't do that.

What else can I do?

in firefox (and only firefox) the height of the pop bulliten is long...
it should only be 230 pixels as you can see in internet exploror

Maybe it's because you've forgot to close a cell, delete a certain closing attribute, we don't know. Try validating your page to see if you forgot anything.

I have a marquee That's your problem.

Marquees are annoying, destracting, attention-grabbing monsters, and I have yet to see an example of an acceptable marquee.
That said, the marquee element is IE proprietary and should therefore be avoided; if you have to have one, a cross-browser DHTML solution would be the only acceptable way.

If you can supply a link to your page people can inspect the markup, styles and script and try to spot the error.

If so, what about using JavaScript scrolling texts?

I were having the same problem and I have found a solution using mrruben5's approach. Just put it in a div ignoring overflow.

Like that:


<div style="overflow:hidden; height: 200px;">
<marquee id="recent_topics" behavior="scroll" direction="up" height="200" scrolldelay="50" scrollamount="1" >
bla bla bla .... text ....
</marquee>
</div>

Marquees should be coded using JavaScript. There is no such HTML tag.

Marquees should be coded using JavaScript. There is no such HTML tag.
There is, however, a valid CSS value which allows it in Firefox.

Seriously, though, avoid using them. They're just annoying. Seeing as you're the designer, you should be telling your client this
