Understanding the JavaScript editor improvements

As you have seen in the two previous recipes, the HTML and CSS editors have been greatly improved in Visual Studio 2012 and you'll be pleased to know that the JavaScript editor has also received a significant overhaul. With HTML and JavaScript being first-class choices for developing Windows Store apps it's not really a surprise that it happened.

Within the HTML5 specification the marquee tag is no longer valid, but thanks to Aaron Powell (http://www.aaron-powell.com/doing-it-wrong/marquee) we have a way to implement a marquee tag using JavaScript and jQuery. In this recipe we will write a JavaScript script to emulate a marquee tag so that we can learn how the editor works.
