HTML <blink> tag

Updated: 10/11/2017 by Computer Hope

HTML blink tagWhen writing in HTML, the <blink> tag was an inline element used to designate a section of text that would flash on and off. The following sections contain information about this tag, including an example of it in use and browser compatibility.

Note: The <blink> tag is no longer supported and does not work in any of the new browser versions. A combination of CSS and JavaScript must be used instead to attain this effect.

Example code

<blink>Blinking text for older browsers.</blink>

Example result

Blinking text for older browser.

Note: This example was done using the JavaScript blinking text example since the blink tag is no longer supported.
