Remarks

All HTML descendants of this element have independent, or parallel, timing.

Use this element instead of the t:TIMELINE attribute to create a time container without using an HTML element. All descendant elements, or time children, of this new time container inherit the time properties of their container. Unlike the time children of the t:SEQ element, the par descendants have no implicit timing relationships with each other, and their timelines might overlap. The t:PAR element effectively groups elements together so they can be easily modified as a single unit.

The prefix t is used to associate this element with an XML namespace. You must include the following line of code in the head section of your HTML document when using this element.


<XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX="t"/>

The t:PAR element is available as of Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, only in the Microsoft Win32 platform.

Example

This example uses the t:PAR element to apply a timeline to a group of HTML elements.


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX="t"/>

<STYLE>
  .time    { behavior:url(#default#time);}
</STYLE>
</HEAD>

<BODY BGCOLOR="white">
<FONT FACE="Verdana">
<t:PAR CLASS=time t:BEGIN="0" t:DUR="10" t:TIMEACTION="display">
    <H3>Paragraph 1</H3>
    <P>This is paragraph number one. It appears for ten seconds 
    immediately after the page is loaded.</P>
    <SPAN CLASS=time t:BEGIN="5">
        <H3>Paragraph 2</H3>
        <P>This is paragraph number two. It appears five seconds
        after the page is loaded, and remains displayed until its 
        parent element's timeline ends at ten seconds.</P> 
    </SPAN>
</t:PAR>
</FONT>
</BODY>
</HTML>
