Attribute for <MARQUEE ...>

SCROLLDELAY, together with SCROLLAMOUNT, sets the speed of the scrolling. Marquee moves the content by displaying the content, then delaying for some short period of time, then displaying the content again in a new position. SCROLLDELAY sets the amount of delay in milliseconds (a millisecond is 1/1000th of a second). The default delay is 85.

The following examples show the default SCROLLDELAY (i.e. when it is not set), a value of 500 (half a second) and 1000 (one full second).

this code produces this

SCROLLDELAY is good for making the marquee slower then the default but it's not much help in speeding it up. Try SCROLLAMOUNT to speed up the marquee.
