Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using gradients, part of CSS: Advanced Typographic Techniques.

So, first thing I'm going to do is…right after background color I'm going to come down.…I'm going to come in, and I'm going to type in background.…And what I'm going to do here is I'm going to do a linear-gradient,…so it's letting me know that I want to do a linear gradient.…Open up a parenthesis and I'm going to say, to bottom.…So this is directional, so it's basically going to say from one…color to the bottom.…the next thing I'm going to do is do a comma,…so I'm going to separate the values out here through using commas.…
