Syntax

height="height in pixels or percentage"

Description

The height attribute does exactly what you would expect it to - sets the height of the marquee element. Note that when increasing the height of the marquee, the text inside the marquee remains at the top; it is not centered vertically.

Example

The height attribute set to "200":

<marquee height="200">Important!</marquee>

Value

A number representing the height of the marquee in pixels or as a percentage.
