Well, first of all, the marquee tag is not part of the HTML standard and never has been so I'm not surprised if something doesn't work. iirc, this was a Microsoft invention from the 90s.

All versions of Internet Explorer need a doctype. The doctype they need for proprietary html "marquee" is:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
  2. "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
Validate to that doctype. Once that is done, or as close to it as you are able to achieve, bring it back if the proprietary html "marquee" does not work (render as intended) in compliant browsers -- among them -- Opera, Safari, and Firefox. Better yet: Remember, not to forget, that this is the year of our Lord 2008-- not 1998. And that, perhaps, you could explore contemporary means to achieve your goal. Or could you?

First, you are trying to use html. What you linked to is CSS.
Second, that is a Marquee module, not a marquee property, though there is a marquee-style.
Third, that is still in draft form and I'm not sure which browsers support it. Opera does so I think Safari would, too. IE definitely will not.
