CSS Question

Can you add noise to a CSS3 gradient?

Is it possible to add noise to a gradient in CSS?

Here is my code for a radial gradient:

body {
color: #575757;
font: 14px/21px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
background-color: #2f3b4b;
background: -moz-radial-gradient(center 45deg, circle closest-corner, #2f3b4b 0%, #3e4f63 100%);
background: -webkit-gradient(radial, center center, 10, center center, 900, from(#2f3b4b), to(#3e4f63));

What would I add to that to have noise on top of it, to give it texture?


There's no current way in css to add 'noise' to a background.

An alternative solution would be to create a transparent noise png in your graphic editor. Then apply that graphic as a background to a <div>. You would then need to place that <div> over the entire area of the <body> which should then give an appearance of a gradient with noise.
