>From the simple to the advanced, CSS has a lot of effects to offer with a little bit of code.

This week we're documenting background, border, and transform properties. And looking around, there's a lot of great advice and tools out there.

For instance, did you know there's a site out there just to help you create a border radius? The site's name? border-radius.com http://border-radius.com/, of course. And at the other end of the spectrum, Mike Sierra's article on CSS transforms <http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/tutorials/css_transforms> takes a deck of cards and shuffles them every which way.

Shay Howe also has a straightforward Transforms <http://learn.shayhowe.com/advanced-html-css/css-transforms> tutorial that takes you from the basics to a 3D cube demo, before you even know how far you've gone.

And then there's the hoedown with backgrounds from Rob Fletcher, who shows out to do CSS background transformations <http://blog.freeside.co/post/42357804660/css-background-transformations> the right way.

With so much help from such a creative community, it's really fun to beef up the reference pages for these properties.

Head on over to the Web Platform Wednesday page <http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/Meta:web_platform_wednesday> and see where you can lend your creativity. If you find any properties you want to work on, or have questions about, come and chat with the co-ordinators in the #webplatform IRC Channel <http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=webplatform> or via email on the mailing list <mailto: public-webplatform@w3.org>, as there is always someone who will be happy to help.
