Fun with CSS

It doesn’t really have anything to do with the rest of this site, but I wanted to experiment with a CSS technique that is very popular with a lot of web designers. Rounded corners work well with many web layouts, but most conventional approaches to making them require making custom images which can be tricky if you don’t have the right software, and requires new images every time you change the color scheme. I’ve seen other methods with heavy use of javascript, but that excludes some site visitors. There are also ones that use many extra DIVs to artificailly create the round corners, but they can be cumbersome to edit.

My experiment uses a text character, the bullet, •, instead of an image to put something round in the corner. If this interests you check out the rounded corner article I posted. Also check out Eric Meyer’s web site for all things CSS, and the CSS Zen Garden for stunning CSS designs.
