The <blink> element is an obsolete tag that was historically used to make text flash on and off. However it is now considered to be obsolete and non-standard. It is now deprecated from most browsers, and is not part of the current HTML specifications.

Using this tag is a bad design practice and is heavily discouraged by accessibility standards. The CSS specification allows browsers to ignore this tag.


<!-- Not advised to use this tag! -->
<blink><!-- Blinking text goes here --></blink>
