  <h1>Single Element Link Styles</h1>
  <p>These have been made to specifically be a single element link - use of pseudo but no wrapping spans here. Have tried to keep relatively browser supported.</p>
  <p><small>(I have kept the styles independent of each other so that could be taken individually easily so there is some repetition)</small></p>

<h2>Text Underline Animation</h2>

<p>Inspired by things that have seen from <a href="https://medium.design/crafting-link-underlines-on-medium-7c03a9274f9" target="_blank">Medium</a> and other peoples <a href="https://codepen.io/ghepting/pen/tLnHK" target="_blank">pens</a> but with an added attempt at bringing in some animation. Currently limited to a link that is in total 10000px wide across all lines but want to find a better way to do that.</p>
