After today's news that the <blink> tag will be deprecated in Firefox, I decided to re-implement it in html5 / CSS3 (no Javascript required). Now it's all modern again, you are free to use <blink> liberally in your web application.

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
blink
{
animation:blink 1s;
animation-iteration-count: infinite;
-webkit-animation:blink 1s;
-webkit-animation-iteration-count: infinite;
}
@keyframes blink
{
0%{opacity:0.0;}
50%{opacity:0.0;}
50.01%{opacity:1.0;}
100%{opacity:1.0;}
}
@-webkit-keyframes blink
{
0%{opacity:0.0;}
50%{opacity:0.0;}
50.01%{opacity:1.0;}
100%{opacity:1.0;}
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

The <blink>Blink Tag</blink>, re-implemented!

</body>
</html>

Edit: Just to demonstrate that it works!

Inspect the code if you don't believe me...
