blinking text

Quick Reference

Text in a Web page which is displayed, then disappears for a short time, and then reappears, or which regularly changes its colour. It is regarded by the vast majority of Web designers and users as hugely distracting. In the early days of the World Wide Web it was the only form of animation available to designers.
