In this tutorial, I will present you my alternative solution to the select form tag. It’s css-only and it looks simple but really nice. We will use a list of radio elements, styled as a drop-down list, that will look and behave similarly to the select element. Of course you have to provide some fallback for mobile devices (and IE8 if you wish). I discuss that briefly in the final part of this tutorial. Check the demo and choose your favorite beer.
Last month I got a chance to experiment with CSS3 typography techniques and see how far I could mix and match these techniques to create a visually stunning piece of typography on the web. Today, I’ll show you how you can use these CSS3 properties to spice up your typography or create stunning text effects in a way you don’t think is possible. Cutting Edge CSS3 Typography Techniques Note: These effects will only work on Webkit browsers but I have added fallbacks to make it viewable on other browsers. Gradient on Text This works the same way as creating a gradient background with CSS3 but we clip the background to a text instead.
In this new category called “Tips and Tricks” we will introduce some quick and interesting methods around web development and web design. In today’s tip we’ll show you how to spice up your menu by adding a neat hover effect to it. The idea is to slide an image out to the right when hovering over a menu item. Each menu item (which is a unordered list item in this case) will have an anchor containing two spans and an image: We’ll give .mh-menu li a display block and rgba(255,255,255, 0.8) as background color.
If you're familiar with the grid, a bit of design and basic typography, using this script should be pretty easy - most of the functions are pretty self-explanatory. If you're unfamiliar with grids in general, you could start by reading an excellent series of articles by web designer Mark Boulton. For those who want a real understanding of the theory of grids in relation to design and typography, I strongly recommend this book . On the Columns tab, you can start your design in two ways: Fill in the number of columns, total width, gutters and margin widths, all specified in pixels - then press the design button.
