Does anyone want blinking text?

All you need to do is replace the bold area with your word or paragraph. These are all the styles you need to make boxes like these. If you don't want the blinking text, simply remove the blinking text style: text-decoration: blink;. Feel free to experiment. You can replace the "beige" color with colors like red, green, orange, brown, etc.

If you want to indent the entire box, add this to the list of styles: margin-left: 20px;. You can also increase the border size by adjusting the pixels, border: 2px dashed gray;. To change the border pattern, pick one of these--solid, dotted, dashed, double, groove, ridge, inset, or outset.

<p style="text-decoration: blink; background-color: beige; border: 4px double gray; padding: 15px;">Blinking paragraph</p>

<p style="background-color: beige; border: 2px dotted gray; padding: 15px;">Blinking <b style="text-decoration: blink;">word</b></p>

Blinking text is really annoying.

This seems like a distraction from what I really want to learn here.

You're right. It can be very irritating. That's why I rarely ever use this. The box is useful though. - Rex_W, OCT 31, 2009

Oh yes, blinking, probably.

But you may want to also consider that markup - judiciously used - can add considerably to the ease of presenting and understanding questions and answers. We use bold, italics, block quotes and hyperlinks easily because they are offered as part of the forum infrastructure. But the possiblity to highlight or use color can also really help to express oneself easily here.

So maybe we can actually thank rex_wilhoit for helping to more easily concentrate on what we want to learn here.

I am still hoping that someday the forum to allow one to upload snippets of sound for analysis and/or to "illustrate" :--) a question.

Bye the way, I don't remember who it was that gave us a crash course in using Markdown a while ago, but I want to say thanks. It's coming in handy in another forum I'm in for a course I'm taking. Thanks! :D

¡Hola!, Rex:

Just to let you know,I think I'm still in conflict mode because it isn't blinking on my screen.

I hope this news is not disappointing.

It works in Firefox and Opera. I haven't tried it in Internet Explorer or Safari. Google Chrome doesn't allow it because it can easily annoy people. - Rex_W, OCT 31, 2009
