blink element(Referring UWEM Test: 7.2_HTML_01)
Found blink element
The document uses the blink element to create blinking content.
Why this may be a barrier
The blink element is supported by many browsers and can be used to create a blinking effect on text.
But it is not part of the HTML/XHTML standard and as such inherently inaccessible. Additionally avoid causing content to blink due to accessibility issues with slow readers and people with visual impairments and photosensitive epilepsy.
