The text does not scroll over the complete width. If behavior=alternate, the text outruns the page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: See testcase, compare with IE. Note: In some cases the content is lost.
Ok, I'm confirming this, because the behavior is indeed different from IE. I know that behavior seems different from branch, but has this really become worse? It seems that when the marquee content fits inside marquee behavior=alternate, you get a more or less normal behavior=alternate behavior (but with the text-indent). But when it doesn't fit (because of the text-indent), I have no idea what IE is doing. For normal marquees, the text-indent seems to be part of the marquee content, so I guess I should do that for Mozilla and hope that it also makes behavior=alternate more acceptable.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
We appear to be indenting twice: once for the marquee, once for the text?
OS: Windows XP → All
Hardware: PC → All
Version: unspecified → Trunk
Is this really used a lot for marquees?
Switching from blocks to XUL and back to blocks probably means we get the indent both inside and outside the XUL. Putting text-indent:0 on something in the middle to stop it from inheriting through would probably fix this, I'd think.
