http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/cmarquee.htm or http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/cmarquee2.htm - the marquee tag itself is deprecated and the attributes you are trying to add to this tag probably are not supported by the browser you are using to test it

Did you pick out one of the codes above since the marquee tag is deprecated?

In FrontPage 2003 to insert a marquee and select the background color:
 :
1) Go to "Insert" in the main menu
2) Choose "Web Component"
3) In the fiorst option - Dynamic Effects - select "Marquee"
4) In the "marquee properties" screen-  at the bottom right use the "Background Color" option to change the backgrounbd color of the marquee.
50 For the color of the text - choose STYLE( on the left) and FORMAT and FONT - then you can choose the color as well.
