Multi-Colored text using only CSS

0 votes

I'm not sure whether my headline adequately conveyed what I was talking about, but I'll clarify below.

I want to use solely CSS to give each character in a string of text a different color.

This is useless to me, and it takes a little time regardless:

<!--I don't want this, and I cannot use it-->
<span style="font-family: tahoma">
<span style="color: red">U</span>
<span style="color: blue">s</span>
<span style="color: red">e</span>
<span style="color: blue">r</span>
<span style="color: red">n</span>
<span style="color: blue">a</span>
<span style="color: red">m</span>
<span style="color: blue">e</span>
</span>

I want this and can only use this:

<span class="username">Username</div>

Where "username" would be defined by CSS. That CSS is what I need. This would also obviously have the same effect as the HTML version.

The reason I need it to be only in CSS is that I'm using this code on Xenforo Usernames. I've seen it done before, so I know it is very well possible. I've googled for about half an hour, experimented with gradients, but couldn't duplicate it. I'm hoping somebody out there can help.

Put your text inside a span> tag and give it the class "multicolortext." The CSS background-image property is then required to add a gradient backdrop to your text with its "linear-gradient" value, where you enter the names of your desired colours.
