<head>
<title>Title</title>

<marquee align=center loop=infinite>
  Bla bla bla
  ..........      Taste great, too!
</marquee>


</body>
</html>

For example, to create a marquee that is 50 pixels tall and occupies one-third of the display window, use:
<marquee height=50 width="33%">

Space between marquee
<marquee vspace=10 hspace=10>
