Can any web designers speak to what's up with the <marquee> tag? I want to use it in a tasteful, scrolling-credits-type way — is it even worth doing?

I know that the tag is depreciated and has non grata status with the W3C, but it still works for me both in FF7 and IE8, and I still see it used on the web on a not-infrequent basis. Has anyone used it in any recent web design work? Or is there a reasonable replacement to generate a scrolling effect without something as heavy as jQuery? I know that CSS3 has an overflow-style property which should allow the marquee effect, but that doesn't seem to be widely supported yet. Thoughts?
