Marquee onFinish

I've been asked to create a type of ticker tape system and to be nice and easy wanted to use marquee. The issue is that the message needs to change sometimes, so I found that there is a onFinsh event which I can use an AJAX request to get the latest message, however I cannot get it to fire the onFinish event when its finished scrolling in quick proof of concept design

Code I currently have is:-
<style>
	#marTest1 {
		font-size:70px;
	}
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
	function WriteInfo (event) {
		alert("hi");
	}
</script>


<marquee id="marTest1" behavior="scroll" direction="left" onfinish="WriteInfo (event)">This is a test</marquee>

Open in new window


Any idea what Im doing wrong?

Just to add one note to Prakash's comment, the entire Marquee element itself is obsolete and has been for a while.
Though most browsers still support it, they specifically say don't use it, as they could remove the functionality at any point.
And your html will never validate if you're using it.
