Another HTML5, CSS3 Navigation Menu For Blogger


In this tutorial, we’ll take a look and see what we can achieve with HTML5 and CSS3. HTML5 brings to the spec a dedicated <nav> element that should be used as the container for any major navigation structure, such as the main vertical or horizontal site navigation menus, or an in-page table of contents for example. IE unfortunately doesn’t support this new element yet, but there is a simple fix we can use, of which I’m sure you’re all aware.

How to add it to blogger blog

1. Go to Layout > Add A Gadget and select HTML/JavaScript gadget.

2. Copy the HTML link and paste it inside the content box.
