Some Web Text
The above example has been styled from a single anchor element using the :before selector
It will show a hover effect in FF3+, Webkit and Opera, but not in IE8 or below.
The hover effect will be animated in FF4+ using the CSS3 transition property, but this isn't currently supported in any other browser, even though it is part of the W3C spec. No it won't work using JQuery either, because generated content isn't part of the DOM.
