i need blinking text on web page, i got this by using below mentioned script only when i use <blink> tags within html in Internet Explorer, but if picked the data along with tags from database it would not work. but firefox works perfeclty well in both conditions, i have PHP and MySQL and i have all menu items in database. could some one help me to get the desire


<SCRIPT>
function doBlink() {
// Blink, Blink, Blink...
var blink = document.all.tags("BLINK")
for (var i=0; i < blink.length; i++)
blink[i].style.visibility = blink[i].style.visibility == "" ? "hidden" : ""
}
function startBlink() {
// Make sure it is IE4
if (document.all)
setInterval("doBlink()",400)
}
window.onload = startBlink;
</SCRIPT>
