by Daniela Vaseva Source article

CSS3 offers a wealth of possibilities in terms of visual and interactive effects, even allowing you to create animated elements without the need for either Flash or JavaScript. In this tutorial we’ll go through the process of translating a page element using a CSS3 transform.


The translate function essentially moves an element by a specified distance along the X and Y axes. You do need to provide browser-specific code to create reliable transforms, but the technique is not particularly complex.
