Gradient Question

Hey, everyone. I was trying to use the gradient value with the background property in an internal stylesheet (using the body tag) today with no success. Does anyone know if it can be put here?

Hi Demian,

Should be working, this is how it works for -webkit- browsers: background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#ccc), to(#000));

A good link to refer to is the one from Webdesignerwall: http://webdesignerwall.com/tutorials/cross-browser-css-gradient Or from CSS-Tricks using background-image: http://css-tricks.com/css3-gradients/

Hope that works!
