    Code:
    behavior: url('blink.htc');
    IE doesn't support that...

    Your code throws errors in Dreamweaver...

    Go on, validate it.

    • csshacker disagrees : I know that IE6 supports it, so the validation program is wrong. And check your page on IE6, and you'll see: the text DOES blink.
    • codergeek42 agrees : Balancing and adding to your rep. :)
    • B-Con agrees : have some rep, you need compensation for your lost time

    Test it in Internet Explorer 6, not Dreamweaver. That's what I did. It should also work on IE5.5, but no sooner. If you use IE5, it's time for an upgrade.

    Hold up, you really think the w3c's validator is wrong because your
    piece of crap code doesn't validate?

    Actually, that should read: 'If you use IE, it's time for an upgrade'.
