One of the cool CSS techniques I used a few places in Sweeva was CSS gradients ... That's right, gradients WITHOUT the use of images, it's pretty cool!
So cool in fact I made a site dedicated to it, it's pretty easy to use and spits out the CSS you'll need for the gradient background: http://css-gradient.com/ (I got inspiration from this awesome site)
That CSS should work in every browser except Opera, if you're in Opera you're out of luck. If you're a beginner to CSS and the code it spits out means nothing to you, this post should help!
Hope you all like it!
If this gains traction and I get a few comments asking for it, I'll spend the time to make those input boxes draggable so you can change the gradient's angle.
