Access: [7.2.1.1]: remove blink/marquee (Priority 2)

Cause:

Both <blink> and <marquee> are non-standard elements and should not be used in html documents. Use style sheets to emphasize content with special formatting (i.e. bold, italics, capitalization, underline, etc.)

Example:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>aert1.0/7.2.1</title>
</head>
<body>
<p>Here is a word of <blink>blinking</blink> text.</p>
</body>
</html>
