  1. Very interesting, thanks.
    Last fall, I decided that in my 60s it would be good to learn some other profession and decided that the frontend would be closest to me. Unfortunately, the process does not go so fast, but now I am mastering the CSS. Just here there will be one more point to practice

  2. This isn’t a comment on the article per se, which is awesome btw, just an observation that your print stylesheet has a rule of display:none; for img but for an article like this the images are almost the whole point.
    I sometimes print articles to PDF for later perusal and I had to come back and disable your CSS rule before the article could make complete sense in the PDF.

  3. Thanks,Oscar!it is informativel for me right now as I learn and work on a css animations project. I’m better at it with you.)This is really important when trying to find a simple and clear explanation.

  4. Hey just noticed that the knockout text doesn’t work with just the code you provided. Tested it in Edge and Firefox as of 2/3/2023 using the latest build of each.

    1. Hi, the code provided is just to create the filter. I didn’t include CSS because it is assumed that you already know how to style text with CSS.

      Here’s the CSS I used:

      font-family: ‘Poppins’, sans-serif;
      position: absolute;
      width: 1000px;
      padding: 20px;
      font-size: 5rem;
      font-weight: 800;
      filter: url(#knockout);

      Try this; it should work fine on any modern browser, including Firefox and edge. Cheers!
