We already know that CSS3 has the ability to create a lot of new possibilities to design and implement better web forms. Also, HTML5 has its important role when it comes about creating more usable forms, without actually needing any Javascript code. Knowing that, check out the below preview to see the login form we're going to create in this article: View demo Markup <form id="login"><h1>Log In</h1><fieldset id="inputs"><input id="username" type="text" placeholder="Username" autofocus required><input id="password" type="password" placeholder="Password" required></fieldset><fieldset id="actions"><input type="submit" id="submit" value="Log in"><a href="">Forgot your password?

I got some great comments on my post about conditionally loading content. Just to recap, I was looking for a way of detecting from JavaScript whether media queries have been executed in CSS without duplicating my breakpoints. That bit is important: I’m not looking for MatchMedia, which involves making media queries in JavaScript. Conditional CSS Conditional CSS

CSS3 Shapes CSS3 Shapes This is a pure collection of shapes made with CSS3 techniques. These are inspired from the shapes on CSS3Shapes.com, and some of these shapes are created using the same technique while others are creating using a different approach. Most of the shapes are created by using the CSS3 pseudo classes :before and :after to reduce the number of divs. Triangles and trapeziums are created using borders.

Twice a month, we revisit some of our readers’ favorite posts from throughout the history of Nettuts+. This tutorial was first published in November, 2010. So you learned the base id, class, and descendant selectors - and then called it a day? If so, you're missing out on an enormous level of flexibility. While many of the selectors mentioned in this article are part of the CSS3 spec, and are, consequently, only available in modern browsers, you owe it to yourself to commit these to memory. Let's knock the obvious ones out, for the beginners, before we move onto the more advanced selectors.

The 30 CSS Selectors you Must Memorize

Abstract A grid with four slots defined by ‘display: "aaaaaaa" "bccccdd"’. CSS is a simple, declarative language for creating style sheets that specify the rendering of HTML and other structured documents. This specification is part of level 3 of CSS (“CSS3”) and contains features to describe layouts at a high level, meant for tasks such as the positioning and alignment of “widgets” in a graphical user interface or the layout grid for a page or a window, in particular when the desired visual order is different from the order of the elements in the source document. Other CSS3 modules contain properties to specify fonts, colors, text alignment, list numbering, tables, etc. CSS Template Layout Module CSS Template Layout Module
Stripes in CSS Stripes are pretty easy to do in CSS these days. CSS gradients via the background-image property really got our back. I thought I’d document some varitions in one easy to reference place.


The goal of a reset stylesheet is to reduce browser inconsistencies in things like default line heights, margins and font sizes of headings, and so on. The general reasoning behind this was discussed in a May 2007 post, if you're interested. Reset styles quite often appear in CSS frameworks, and the original "meyerweb reset" found its way into Blueprint, among others. The reset styles given here are intentionally very generic.

In my CSS3 presentation that I’ve given several times over the past year, the part that seems to impress the audience the most is my demonstrations of media queries. I’m with them. I think media queries are perhaps the most useful and exciting piece of all the great new stuff that’s new to CSS3. While creating effective, attractive, flexible layouts that adapt to the user’s screen size has always been possible, media queries add another layer on top of flexible layouts to make them even more adaptable to an even wider range of sizes, allowing you to really fine-tune the experience for even more users. Media queries allow you to selectively feed styles based on the characteristics of the user’s display or device, such as how much width is available in the viewport, whether it’s in portrait or landscape mode, or whether it can display color.

20 stunning examples of CSS 3D transforms

Developer Paul Hayes showcases what you can do with CSS3 3D transforms. Rounded corners, gradients and drop shadows are well known features of CSS3, but beyond these there lie CSS transitions, transforms and animations. In combination they create effects never before achievable. CSS 3D transforms are smooth, hardware accelerated and simple to implement, with browsers taking on what would be very difficult perspective calculations. They've been around since 2009 and are supported in Safari and Chrome, and shortly in Firefox 10 and Internet Explorer 10. They perform superbly on iOS devices, even on iPhone 3G and iPad.
19th April, 2011 Tom Kenny Tutorials For the most part, the CSS3 tutorials and examples out there are a little dull. Of course there are some really great examples out there such as Benjamin de Cock’s CSS Playground but most others consist of a drop-shadow here and a few rounded corners there and nothing more. It’s time to start doing something more inspirational and useful at the same time. Having been inspired to get ‘Hardboiled‘, I’ve started playing around with a few cool techniques and exploring how to make the content accessible in less capable browsers while giving the best possible experiences to the ones that support the latest advancements in CSS. I’ve taken Benjamin’s CSS lightbox gallery and built upon by adding a few hover effects for the gallery grid itself and a 3D rotation for the lightbox content, all with the use of CSS.
