    Pause Tag

    Hello Again,

    I am struggling to figure this out and I've searched the net for a good hour now, and I've searched this forum prior to posting.

    I know how to scroll text in any direction, I know how to set the speed, but I don't know how to set the pause.

    People talk of dreams and they talk of reality. Often cliche's will suggest that it is always important to never let go of our dreams. But there is a major conflict between these two terms. Dreams or the fantasy world are not reality, and reality is not our dreams. We go through the ups and downs of a day and a roller coaster of a life and yet we always hope and dream of doing better than we are now. Whether we are looking for financial improvements or perhaps hoping to get married or have children. I wouldn't argue that we our a race that is always looking to improve or push forward in areas of technology, but on the personal level of our own growth, the feelings aren't necessarily the same.

    We've all done good and evil, wrong and right, and over time have learned things in many ways including trial and error. It's not just an issue of wanting to improve but one has to consider perhaps we are a greedy creature as well that always wants more than what they have and are never satisfied. The cup is either half empty or it's half full. It all comes down to your perception of things, but whether it's half empty or full, it could be filled higher is the point.

    I wouldn't ever suggest someone to give up on dreams they have. Regardless of how far fetched they seem, everyone deserves the opportunity to chase down those dreams. While admittedly saying that I hope they can do it without hurting anyone else in the process of course. I mean you might want a lot of money, but I hope you don't rob a bank to get it. I think in a discussion of fantasy and reality one has to acknowledge the probability of certain things and see how possible they even are. Shooting for the stars is great, but it's a far fall down as well. There has to be some middle ground to all of this, a point where we can say, that is an achievable goal.
    I've looked on the net and pretty much all scrollers use the Pause tag and suggest it like this:

    <pause>

    without any end code or close tag required. Stating that the default pause is 2000 milliseconds. However since I'm not using there scroller, since I most likely have to pay for it, and I don't want this thing framed or Iframed, I want to simply know how to use the Pause and how to set up the code with adjustment for time.

    Can someone show me an example of how to use the pause tags please.

    Thank you so much,

    Omega

    Believe it.

    Use any search term with:

    <pause>

    Or

    HTML Pause Tag

    anything, those two pages you showed did not come up. All it showed were product listings and about 5 pages that didn't help me at all.

    But then again in a quick look I couldn't find Pause tag on those pages either, so I'll CTRL F for it, but still even further, I use Firefox all the time, so that might explain why it wasn't working for me.

    I don't like the mouseover pause so much but if that is all I have that is fully browser compatible, I guess I'll use that instead.

    I didn't notice the pause tag, because it isn't on either page.

    Again, can someone show me an actual Code example of it please?

    Not an html tag but a CSS property.

    (Examples there too.)
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    Are you referring to a Javascript scroller of some kind? There isn't some magical default scroller that's controlled by HTML and CSS. (Especially since HTML is only markup and CSS is only style.) The CSS property Excavator refers to is for an aural stylesheet.

    I've learned not to jump the gun around here though, there are a lot of smart people in this forum and it's been proven time and again that I don't know as much as I think I do.

    The pause property in CSS takes two values which are the amount of time that a web reader should delay before and after speaking the content that the pause is attached to. It has no effect on how a page displays, only on how it is spoken.
