CSS Circle Menu

Author: Dynamic Drive

An interesting CSS trick is the creation of "circles", by using CSS3's border-radius property that's set to a very large value: When you do this, the border on each of the four corners of the element merge into a continuous round edge, creating the look of a circle.

The key as mentioned is just to set the border-radius property to a very large value, at least 50% of both the width and height of the element:

border-radius: 400px; /*really large border radius to create round borders*/
-moz-border-radius: 400px;
-webkit-border-radius: 400px;

This technique works in all browsers that support CSS3's border-radius property, namely, IE9+, FF3+, Safari, Chrome, and Opera 9+.

I'm now thinking of how to design my website and looking for navigation menu on my site. This menu looks a little bit weird!! I wish that dynamic drive could design more nice navigation bar. Rounded corner would be the best!! =)

either set the border-radius property to a smaller value, or look at the other choices for nav bars on this site!
