    Nope, blinking is only available in Netscape, and marquee is only available in IE.

    Um, NS do support marquee. Marquee is also suggested to be included in the CSS3 spec.
    Blink is already in the CSS specs, so IE not supporting is basilcy becuse it's buggy.

    Naturally any browser that supports blink or marquee should have an easily reachable preferencesetting to turn them off, since they can be quite disturbing, especially for some disabled persons.

    Hopefully the marquee will not appear in CSS-3, it would be rather illogical to use CSS for that purpose.

    IMO it fits right in with CSS, providing layout and formating for unstyled HTML.

    <marquee> as a tag however has no business existing at all.

    Well, before we start talking about CSS 2 and 3 the intended audience should be determined. If for a general audience then you should create the page to be viewed on the lowest common denominator of browsers. In that case marquee is only on IE and blink is only on NN. Don't be jumping the gun before you know the audience, that is the #1 reason for designing your site, or should be anyway.

    The <marquee> tag is implemented alread today on NN.
    At least bother to check before claiming how it is.

    Yes, I was mentioning the effects of <marquee> element not the fact of why it may be consider presentational rather than structural, LOL.

    Yes, the "Frobozz Magic Fudge Company" seems to have influence within the W3C. On one hand there's WAI on the other; well it will degrade gracefully, hmmm…

    Yep on the latest browser version for sure. But read before you rebut, the older versions do not.
