I’ve recently seen a few blog posts about some lesser know CSS capabilities that I find to be just amazing. I don’t think they’re the kind of thing that will get used frequently, but I suspect they are quite helpful?in specific situations.
Sass Functions to Kick-Start Your Style Sheets?highlights some lesser-known ways to manipulate content like darken/lighten, opacify/transparentize, complement, percentage, and if. “If” for CSS really could be fun to work with.
Fun Times with CSS Counters?could be used for page numbers, section numbers, and actual counters.?I mean who even knew CSS could do this?
I might have to build a toy box site just to play with these.
