  1. Embedding YouTube videos: some noteworthy facts

    FACT #1
    This video-url : src=", which uses the video service, shows YouTube videos without the distracting elements around them. NO ADS! (I wish I knew the safeshare-code for playing embedded videos without Flash, but I don't).

    FACT #2
    Internet Explorer (and, occasionally, Safari) may refuse to play certain videos outside the YouTube-environment. ...

  2. CSS-only, Multi-Level, Off-Canvass/Slide-Out Menu (no JavaScript)

    I recently worked on a mobile forum with off-canvass/slide-out menu. I wanted to keep the project as small and lightweight as possible, so I chose to snub JavaScript and work on a CSS-only solution. The menu was just a simple 1-level effort using the checkbox hack (where you use the :checked state of a checkbox and a connected label to trigger something with CSS), but it was an excuse for me to play around with CSS3 transitions. That example is here:

  3. Responsive CSS3 Multi-Level, Drop-Down Menu (no JavaScript)

    It's similar to the previous menu in that it uses the same side-docked, off-canvass menu pattern for mobile, but this new version now also sports a horizontal, dropdown menu bar in "desktop" view, ...

  4. Responsive CSS3 Any Content Slider (no JavaScript)

    Fiddling some more with CSS transitions and the checkbox hack to emulate click events via CSS, I tried my hand at making a CSS-only content slider.

    Initially I attempted to make it with checkboxes, but due to the behaviour of multiple checkboxes being checkable at the same time (which totally mungs up the idea for a slider where you only want one slide activated), I turned to radio buttons instead.

  5. Responsive CSS3 Modal Gallery (no JavaScript)

    The latest CSS-only offering is my attempt at an image gallery where image enlargements open in a modal window. It was inspired by a tutorial on modal popups and uses the :target selector in CSS to match the hash at the end of an URL with the id of a corresponding element.

    The logic for this (taken from the modal popups tutorial) is that a hashed URL can be wrapped around a small thumb image, which matches the id of an image enlargement in a modal overlay div. When the hashed small ...
