Thank you!!! Thank you! Thank you!!!!  What exactly is non-prefixed gradients.  And how do you add them.
You're welcome.

It's the official syntax. (I included them in the revised code I posted.) You were only using the Webkit and Mozilla variants (which in this case are the same except using a different prefix) from when this CSS feature was experimental. It doesn't hurt to still include them for backwards compatibility, but some developers consider them unnecessary.

As to how to add them, that would depend on how you add the prefixed gradients. I've actually been working on a tool that might help with that, but I haven't released it publicly yet.
