Hi Experts,

Using CSS only (I'm taking a CSS Course), how can I animate in a title (h1), one character at a time, into the desired position?

Thank you.

It's possible, but my approach will probably hurt your SEO as the title tag would be hidden while the animation is occurring.

Here's how I would do it:

1) Have the <h1> text as hidden, but on the screen in the end position desired.
2) Break out each letter in it's own div or span.
3) Animate that span using css animation
4) Once everything is lined up, turn off all of the divs/spans and turn on <h1> tag.

Just 1 approach.

I know what you mean, but how can I both set left: -200px then transform left 30px

Can you give me an example perhaps "Hi" or "Hey"

I  mean, I dont think that you have a pseudo-selector like span:onbodyload?

Correct, most of the time this is easily accomplished with javascript or jQuery.  I prefer jQuery. So when page loads you can manipulate the css through the jQuery calls. I personally wouldn't do it purely with css, I would use jQuery to help.
