19.1. Enabling Content Scrolling Across the Screen of Mobile Devices (-wap-marquee Property Value)

The -wap-marquee property value is used to enable the scrolling of some content across the screen of a mobile device. -wap-marquee is the property value of the display property.

The following XHTML MP/WCSS example helps you understand how to generate a scrolling effect on your mobile Internet site. We assign the WCSS style "display: -wap-marquee" to the XHTML MP tag that we want to enable the scrolling effect for. In this example, we want an image and a line of text, which are contained in a paragraph, to scroll across the screen of a mobile device.
