Style each half or third of a character, vertically or horizontally, independently and individually.
An easy to use plugin.
HalfStyle is a set of advanced CSS rules that allow styling each half or third of a character, vertically or horizontally, independently and individually.
Works on any dynamic text, or a single character, and is all automated. All you need to do is add a class on the target text and the rest is taken care of.
It also preservs the original text's accessibility for screen readers for the blind or visually impaired.
For a single character:
Pure CSS. All you need to do is add the classes
.halfStyle [-CustomClassName-] to the element containing the character you want to be half-styled.
For each element containing the character, a data attribute holds the character, for example
data-content="X", and the pseudo element uses
content:attr(data-content); so the
.halfStyle.[-CustomClassName-]:before class will be dynamic and you won't need to hard code it for every instance.
For Any text:
.textToHalfStyle class and data attribute
data-halfstyle="[-CustomClassName-]" to the element containing the text.
The included jQuery snippet will do the rest of the job.
You can also define multiple Half-Style style-sets and tell the plugin which one to use on your desired element.

Fixes a Chrome 59 and above issue - Addresses a Chrome bug where Chrome fails to correctly render and repaint pseudo elements - I came up with this fix after many different tests.
Customized Half-Styles dynamic support is the major update. The plugin can use a customized Half-Style style-set via
data-halfstyle="[-CustomClassName-]"on the target
.textToHalfStyleelements. You can define multiple Half-Style style-sets and tell the plugin which one to use.
