CSS3 tips

Web designers spend quite a lot of time being angry. If they’re not moaning about how some typographic nicety isn’t available yet for online design, they’re rattling on about how Internet Explorer has once again left something nasty and smelly in their cereal. So, as an antidote to all that, this month’s CSS article is chock-full of unbridled optimism. What we’re going to do is take a look at some upcoming features of CSS3, and show how they can be of benefit to web designers.

Note that this isn’t The Complete Guide to CSS3; it’s a quickfire look at some of the handy stuff in CSS3 that you can already play around with. Not everything here is currently of practical use (and IE is still playing catch-up with CSS2, let alone CSS3), but it’s still worth being mindful of CSS3, because some properties can add a wee bit of added sparkle to a site without compromising it for users still surfing with the digital equivalent of a surfboard made of cast iron.
