I think some versions of Opera, and the relic Netscrap 4 are the only browsers that have ever support the blink tag.

You have to script it:
<script type="text/javascript">
obj=; x=;
function blinkIt()
{
   obj=document.getElementById('blinkText');
   obj.style.color=(obj.style.color=='red')? 'white' : 'red';
}
</script>
fire it from the onload:
<body onload="x=setInterval('blinkIt()',100)">
and do the text this way:

<span id="blinkText">this text blinks</span>



Then throw away the code and don't use it because there are very few things that are more annoying on a web page then blinking text.

Blinking text is on a par with animated flying birds, auto popups that lack close options, and spam. The only thing worse IMHO are viruses.

This code also uses Timers, but with "visibility" option.

<html>
<head>
<title>Blink Text</title>
<script language="JavaScript">
onload=function() {
  setTimeout("blink_text('blink_text')",500);
}
function blink_text(div_id) {
  // If the text is hidden then display it, else hide the text.
  if (document.getElementById(div_id).style.visibility=="hidden")
    document.getElementById(div_id).style.visibility="visible"
  else
    document.getElementById(div_id).style.visibility="hidden"

  // use the timeout to run the code every 500 miliseconds
  setTimeout("blink_text('"+div_id+"')",500);
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="blink_text">hello world</div>
</body>
</html>
