Animations in Javascript and CSS can be accomplished using style attribute. The most frequently used property of style attribute to create animations / special effects are position, visibility/display, size, filter/opacity.

The position property figuring how an element placed in the window / browser. Visibility and display determine is an element visible or not. Size determine the size of an element. Opacity / filter determine if an element will be transparent or opaque.
