How to disable 'marquee'?
I hope this hasn't been covered before. I looked but couldn't find anything.

Is it possible to disable the 'marquee' and 'blink' tags when using OmniWeb?

I am at a page that uses this and I find that I cannot read the page with this blasted scrolling going on.

In Camino, there is a hidden preference to disable these tags. I am wondering (hoping) that some such facility exists with OmniWeb as well.

There isn't (nor a webkit hidden preference that a know of). The <BLINK> tag shouldn't work in OmniWeb or any other WebKit based browser. Marquee however does work, sorry about that :)

Would hiding the status bar with command-/ help?

Ah. Thank you for the clarification. I obviously misunderstood what the marquee is. What the hell is the term for the text that used to scroll in the status bar of browsers like Firefox? Not that it matter, but...

They create those with JavaScript. I'm not sure if there's a setting to get it to marquee or if it just does that when the string is too long though. (I'm guessing it's the latter.)

I'm not sure if this works in OmniWeb, but serverside (or client side with client CSS or creammonkey or something) this works to disable marquee tags:

[CODE] marquee
// Webkit-specific, to disable marquee
overflow-x: inherit
overflow-y: inherit
// Supposedly mozilla specific, need to test this
-moz-binding: none
overflow: auto
display: block[/CODE]

[CODE]html marquee { overflow-x: inherit; overflow-y: inherit; -moz-binding: none; overflow: auto; display: block; }[/CODE]

Looks like the CSS works on my example above.
