CSS Hover Effects Text

In this tutorial we will show you the solution of css hover effects text, as we know css used to style html elements, here we used internal style method to show demo.

In our program we defined <h1> tag with one sentence. Using css pseudo class ‘:hover’ we defined text shadow effect on ‘h1’ tag so when we hover on text ‘Text Hovering’ text shadow will appear.

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>TEXT HOVER</title>
                text-align: center;
                text-shadow: 2px 2px 4px #555;

  3. As above shown <head> tag is containing information about webpage and if you need any external file those links are declared here. <title> tag is used for set the webpage title.
  4. Within <style> tag we defined block of styles. Here we defined style property ‘text-align: center;’ to align h1 tag text to center of webpage.
  5. Below that we defined pseudo class ‘h1:hover’, it refers hover effect added on ‘h1’ tag. Within that we defined style property ‘text-shadow: 2px 2px 4px #555;’ used to sets shadow behind text.
  6. First two parameters of ‘2px’ refers right and bottom side shadow then ‘4px’ refers amount of blur effect finally ‘#555’ refers shadow color.
  7. Both <head> and <title> tags having their pair end tag, so we need to close the ending tags respectively. If you’re not closed anyone of ending tag properly that is also affect the webpage result.
