CSS/(X)HTML Tutorial: Hovering Accessibility Jump Menu Recently, a reader named Don asked about this theme’saccessibility(accesskey) jump menulocated at the top of each page. Several people have commented that they like the way the jump menu “lights up” upon gaining focus. Whenever a user hovers their cursor over the region at the top of the page, all links in the jump menu change to a more visible color.

HTML5 Reference It is useful to make a distinction between the vocabulary of an HTML document—the elements and attributes, and their meanings—and the syntax in which it is written. HTML has a defined set of elements and attributes which can be used in a document; each designed for a specific purpose with their own meaning. Consider this set of elements to be analogous to the list of words in a dictionary. This includes elements for headings, paragraphs, lists, tables, links, form controls and many other features. This is the vocabulary of HTML. Similarly, just as natural languages have grammatical rules for how different words can be used, HTML has rules for where and how each element and attribute can be used.

As far as we’ve come using HTML 4 and CSS 2.1, however, we can do better.

And I have to say, the stuff he shows off is for the first time, a real example of how HTML5 and CSS3 can replace things like basic Flash animation. A lot of the stuff he shows off is really amazing and one that stuck out at me was around the 4 minute mark, where the text Firefox acts as a mask for a video. Now, this was definitely something that could only be accomplished in Flash, so I really wanted to know how to do it and unfortunately there was nothing out there to tell me how. After some trial and error though, I managed to figured it out, mainly because, thanks to Firefox 4, it’s not at all that hard.
