CSS3 is the latest standard for CSS. CSS3 is completely backwards-compatible with earlier versions of CSS. Most of the new CSS3 properties are implemented in modern browsers.
Some of the best CSS3 modules are:
- Backgrounds and Borders
- Image Values and Replaced Content
- Text Effects
- 2D/3D Transformations
- Multiple Column Layout
- User Interface
I used the rounded corners style. It made the words really shine. You can change the background using more than one background. The shadow effect is another great way to make something pop on your website. Here is an example. It can be found at http://codecanyon.net/item/css3-shadow-hover-effects/6308693 .
You have the ability for 2d or 3d transformations. The element can rotate and spin and move how you chose.

The animation is truly the most fun to use. Now you do not need a flash player to have animation on a website. There is a good you-tube video that shows a lot about animation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7b4NhjxaKg .
The float property is another cool tool. The CSS float property is used to determine the position of HTML elements.Floats are often used to wrap text around images.
