Creating a Neon Blink Effect for your Forms using CSS3 and jQuery

How cool will it be to have a glowing blink effect behind your input boxes in a form without using Flash? Well thanks to the bright new kid on the block, CSS3, spruced up with a bit of jQuery! In this tutorial, I will show you how to build a nifty effect to enhance your forms. Note: In this tutorial, we have made use of @-webkit-keyframes  which works only in browsers using the Webkit layout engine like Chrome and Safari. For browsers like Firefox and Opera, where there is no alternative, we will have to gracefully degrade the effect, which in this case will be just a box-shadow on focus. Internet Explorer (till version 8) cannot render most of what we will learn here, but IE 9 does seem to be very promising from what I’ve seen in the recent platform preview.
