Try this out with Safari or Chrome.

Accordion menus are very popular since Web 2.0 appeared with new widgets in order to enhance the usability of the sites. The Accordion widget is used to display one page out of multiple sections at a time. It is very useful when the content is very large, but there is a small space to present it. A very good example of an Accordion it is the one provided by jQueryUI, where you can get a good understanding if you are not familiar with the creation of one. In this case, we are going to use some CSS3 properties that are not implemented in all the browsers yet and only are supported by Safari and Chrome. So, this is just an experiment, and should be treated like that. I do not expect anyone to add this to the current projects. However, it is good to start considering some great transitions effects created by CSS3 in near the future.

HTML Structure

The HTML code is very simple. It is just a div element that is wrapping all the sections of the accordion. Each section is created by an article which contains a title and the content.

<div id="accordion">
   <article>
      <h2>Section 1</h2>
      <img src="img/img1.jpg" alt="" width="100" height="88" /> 
      <p>
         Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. 
         Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, 
         totam rem aperiam, eaque ipsa quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi architecto beatae vitae dicta sunt explicabo.
      </p>
   </article>
   <article>
      <h2>Section 2</h2>
      <img src="img/img2.jpg" alt="" width="100" height="75" /> 
      <p>
         Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. 
         Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem 
         accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam, eaque ipsa quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi 
         architecto beatae vitae dicta sunt explicabo.
      </p>
   </article>
   <article>
      <h2>Section 3</h2>
      <img src="img/img3.jpg" alt="" width="100" height="67" /> 
      <p>
         Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. 
         Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam, 
         eaque ipsa quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi architecto beatae vitae dicta sunt explicabo.
      </p>
   </article>
   <article>
      <h2>Section 4</h2>
      <img src="img/img4.jpg" alt="" width="100" height="75" /> 
      <p>
         Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. 
         Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, 
         totam rem aperiam, eaque ipsa quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi architecto beatae vitae dicta sunt explicabo.
      </p>
   </article>
</div>
