Hi Experts!

I need some help with CSS3 animations.  I want to create a simple slideUp/Down animation as per jquery's .slideUp() and slideDown() methods.

Its for a mobile accordion widget.

I know how to create the JQ fallback, and to handle the rest of the accordion, what I need a hand with is:

1) How to setup the CSS3 animation for sliding an element into / out of view
2) How to initiate this from javascript.

Is it a simple case of assigning a class that has the transition CSS set on it?

Im not very familiar with CSS3 animations..
