Internet Explorer can run SMIL presentations inside HTML files.

Running SMIL in IE

SMIL elements can be inserted into HTML files in Internet Explorer 5.5 or later.

To use SMIL elements in your HTML pages, you must add a "time" namespace to recognize the elements. To use SMIL attributes, you must define a "time" class. Here is how to do it:

  • Add a time namespace to the <html> tag
  • Add an <?import> element to import the "time" namespace
  • Add a <style> element to define the class "time"


<html xmlns:time="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:time">
<?import namespace="time" implementation="#default#time2">
<style>.time {behavior: url(#default#time2)}</style>

<time:seq repeatCount="indefinite">
  <img class="time" src="/image1.jpg" dur="3s" />
  <img class="time" src="/image2.jpg" dur="3s" />

 In the example above we have added class="time" to the <img> elements, and a "time" prefix to the SMIL elements.

The class and namespace do not have to be called "time". Any name will do.
