I got this code which makes use of the <marquee> tag and I was wondering if anyone would be able to convert it for me to make it work with css since the marquee tag is a deprecated(or IE proprietory not sure) tag.

<marquee scrollamount=2 direction=right width=100 height=31> 
<a href="http://www.fffusion.com" target="_blank"><img src="siteothers/FFFusion_button_b.jpeg" border="0" width="88" height="31"></a> 
<a href="http://www.rpggenesis.co.uk" target="_blank"><img src="siteothers/rpggaffiliateimage.gif" width="88" height="31" border="0"></a> 
<a href="http://www.cloudstrife.com" target="_blank"> <img src="siteothers/cloudstrife.jpg" border="0" width="88" height="31"></a> 
<a href="http://www.ffx-2.com" target="_blank"> <img src="siteothers/ffx2siteaffiliatebutton.gif" border="0" width="88" height="31"></a> 
<a href="http://www.ffeternity.com" target="_blank"> <img src="siteothers/ffeternity.jpg" border="0" width="88" height="31"></a> 
</marquee>

Also I would like the scrolling to stop once the mouse hovers over the image links.

Marquee to CSS

If you want something clever to stop when you mouseover, I suggest you look at javascript or some embedded 'app' - flash maybe?

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

Well, just as long as you're aware of the evils of the marquee concept... :roll:

Try dynamicdrive.com for javascript-based replacements.
