decoration in ie5.2 on Mac

Oh please God do not, I repeat, do NOT use the blink decoration.

It causes epileptic users to have a seizure and decreases overall usability of the website.

Unless its a porn site, where blinking images and text is required Smile

decoration in ie5.2 on Mac

Hi Steven R,
Blink really should be avoided at all costs.
It would only work in Netscape and I think it has been depreciated.

These days nothing turns people of a site quicker then blinking text and animated graphics.
If you need to use them do so sparingly.

I just wanted one word to blink on the whole site. perhaps i will just create a button that blinks with java or flash. i was hoping to do it with css and have it work on both platforms and many browsers.
