Gradients in CSS3

You can create something as simple as the example below or as complex as displaying radial gradient circles positioned throughout your DIV. You can even create color stops similar to what is used within Photoshop anywhere you wish. The possibilities are endless.

The Code:

     -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 0%, 0% 100%, from(#eee), to(#999));

     -moz-linear-gradient(100% 100% 90deg, #999, #eee);

an even shorter way for Mozilla:

     -moz-linear-gradient(bottom, #999, #eee);

Multi-Column CSS3

Example of using multi column :

* column-count: The desired number of columns for the element.
* column-gap: The padding between each column.
* column-rule: The divider for each column; can be used to specify a border.
* column-width: Used to specifically state the width of each column.

#wrapper p {
				-webkit-column-count: 4;
				-webkit-column-gap: 10px;

				-moz-column-count: 4;
				-moz-column-gap: 10px;

				column-count: 3;
				column-gap: 10px;

				-webkit-column-rule: 1px dotted #fff;
				-moz-column-rule: 1px dotted #fff;
