Enfer et putréfaction, the blinking horror is back!

If you see nothing blinking above, you're lucky enough to have a browser that does not render text-decoration: blink.


OMG! That can't be in the CSS spec, can it?! Please be an evil proprietary extension of satan. ;)

Ok, it is in the spec.

Hopefully it's not mandatory for user agents to implement this style, let's hope there is enough inconsistencies between browsers and ignorance by designers to avoid the return of the horrible blink effect on web pages.
