Description cliff goolsby 2008-03-16 17:37:05 PDT
While testing a web page, found that a blinking cursor, set as one of the properies in a CSS page, remains static (i.e., it doesn't blink). Found correct blinking action when using Mozilla Firefox v2.0.0.2.

CSS entry:

p:first-letter {
	font-family:"Times New Roman", Times, serif;
	font-style: oblique;
	text-decoration: blink underline overline;
	background-color: #CCCCCC;
	float: left;

See property "text-decoration," above.  It was found that 'Underline' and 'overline' work as expected, but the 'blink' option is seemingly ignored by Webkit.app.

Confirmed as an enhancement request, but I'm not sure about priority of the bug.

Text blinks (alternates between visible and invisible). Conforming user agents may simply not blink the text. Note that not blinking the text is one technique to satisfy checkpoint 3.3 of WAI-UAAG."

blink for text-decoration is already implemented in Gecko and Presto.

We have no intention of supporting this.  As noted in comment  #1, "Conforming user agents may simply not blink the text".
