    John OtanderJohn Otander

    You can use the background-clip CSS property to create text gradients that are made up of selectable text. This approach can be used with background images as well.

    cssh1 {
      font-size: 100px;
      background-image: linear-gradient(300deg, tomato 25%, red 80%);
      background-clip: text;
      -webkit-background-clip: text;
      -webkit-text-fill-color: transparent;
