Hi All,

I'm new to Dreamweaver and just learning the ropes. I am in the process of re-writing in Dreamweaver a website that I created in Front Page.
I have got the hang of the most basic features but one feature I had on my site was a scrolling 'Marquee' message.
Is it possible, in Dreamweaver 8, to create a scrolling message as with Front Page's Marquee feature?

Thanks
Mike

If understand you correctly you can do this with an animated gif or better still animate text scrolling in flash.

Thanks for the advice, I think I may just give it a miss and go for something else!

The general consensus among developers is that they're not so user friendly. Basically the problem is that they're set a a certain read speed, while people don't read at the same speed. I've been in situations though where a marquee has been a project requirement, and what I found was a web standard solution where the text is in a regular paragraph, while Javascript make it scroll.
