Syntax

width="width in pixels or percentage"

Description

The width attribute does exactly what you would expect it to - sets the width of the marquee element.

Without a width attribute, the marquee element behaves like a block-level element, taking up 100% of the containing element/window. If you apply a width, the marquee then behaves like an inline element.

Example

The width attribute set to "300":

<marquee width="300">Latest News</marquee>

Value

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

Compatibility

Internet Explorer Firefox Safari Opera Chrome

Full Full Full Full None None None Full Full Full Full Full Full Full Full Full Full

Generally well supported (IE, Safari, Opera) but Firefox ignores the width completely, rendering the marquee at 100% width.
