Div at an angle?

  • # October 23, 2009 at 9:57 am


    Is it possible to place a div and an angle on a website rather than always flat on the horizontal plane? Can CCS do this ?

    As far as I know, no, you can’t have a div at an angle. You would need to fake it using images or some other method.

    yea.. at least CSS 2 doesn’t support it yet.. may be CSS 3.0 might support something like that?

    possible? yes with CSS3

    but I wouldn;t recommend it, it makes the text unreadable.

    Thanks for the replies – the CSS3 code works really well – very useful to know.

    Wow. Thanks! I am just starting to learn CSS3, and this trick has already impressed me. You were right, the text inside indeed becomes distorted, which makes it clear that this is the trick Google Gravity uses to finally place the element at different angles, as the text inside those boxes is distorted in the same way as well.

    Check out this site: CSS3 Please… it’s a great help! It also builds css that works in IE, if it is possible. Also, with large enough text, the rotation shouldn’t make it unreadable.
