The blinking text in HTML pages is probably one of the most paradoxical features of the web.
Being extremely popular among the webpage authors, at the same time it’s known as an extremely annoying among the users. “I won't deny the invention,” Lou Montulli, the blink tag inventor, wrote in his blog, “but there is a bit more to the story than is widely known.”
Being quite simple at first glance, it causes a lot of questions. “How to make blinking text in HTML?”, “Is the blink tag alive or dead?”, “How to blink a text without the blink tag?” Amazingly enough, people asked these questions during twenty years, and people keep asking them to this day.
