<!--You need to include following plugin for pauseOnHover. If browser supports CSS3 animation than we don't need this plugin but its better as a fallback for older browsers-->
<srcipt src="https://rawgithub.com/tobia/Pause/master/jquery.pause.js"></script>
Hover over marquee to pause (check HTML tab):
<div class="marquee">jQuery marquee is the best marquee plugin in the world</div>
.marquee {
  width: 300px;
  overflow: hidden;
  border: 1px solid #ccc;
  background: #ccc;
}
$mq = $('.marquee').marquee();

//stop
$mq.marquee('pause');

//on hover start
$mq.hover(function(){
  $mq.marquee('resume');
}, function(){
  $mq.marquee('pause');
})
