Rounded Corners Using CSS

3 Jun

Rounded corners add a nice little design to any page – using rounded corners can be image heavy; So, this post I am going to show you how to make rounded corners using only CSS! This is such a neat little trick and can be very handy.

There are a lot of different methods to make rounded corners – you can use images, JavaScript, CSS or a combination of all three! I am going to make this simple and show you how to make the rounded corners using nothing but CSS. The rounded corners are made using a layering technique – you use (bold) tags and layer them on top of each other to create the rounded corner effect.
