Syntax

bgcolor="colorname/#hexvalue"

Description

The bgcolor attribute is used to set a background color on the marquee.

Example

<marquee bgcolor="red">Danger! Danger!</marquee>

Value

This attribute takes as its value a recognized color name (for example, "blue" or "red"), or a value specified in hexadecimal notation (such as "#003366"). Note that it’s not possible to use shorthand hexadecimal values in HTML as you can in CSS—for example, you can’t express "#cceeff" as "#cef".
