CSS3 adds powerful functionality to the web’s visual style language to help you create beautiful and engaging designs more easily than ever. With CSS3, you can create eye-catching visual effects without images, display text in unique fonts, create animations, and customize design and page layout to a user’s unique device or screen size...all without JavaScript. This second video in a series from Margaret Meier de Cox explores the use of color and transparency in CSS3 projects and looks at effective use of special effects such as rounded corners, drop shadows, text shadows, shadow effects, and linear and radial gradients.
