Not all developers know the marquee tag of HTML, that allows you to create a scrolling piece of text or image displayed that is shown horizontally or vertically on the DOM. Its functional, however this tag is obsolete so you should try to avoid using it. The most reliable alternative to this problem is to use plain JavaScript (or in this case a plugin).

In case you need to implement a marquee with a news ticker style, we have collected 5 of the best jQuery plugins that will help you to achieve your goal.

jQuery Ticker

jQuery Ticker is a lightweight jQuery plugin for animating a simple news ticker.  Add an HTML tag for the ticker container (like a div or a span) with one unordered list containing the ticker items inside. Other content may be inside the ticker container as well. Ticker headlines (the li tags) may contain the following basic HTML tags: <a><b><strong><i><em><u>, and <span>:

<div class="ticker">
    <strong>News:</strong>
    <ul>
        <li>Ticker item #1</li>
        <li>Ticker item #2</li>
        <li><em>Another</em> ticker item</li>
        ...
    </ul>
</div>
  

And to initialize:

$('.ticker').ticker();
