Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I really like this circle with number inside of it. It's awesome way to show new messages in non offensive. I want to create similar notification UX for some eGovernment portal. How can I create this in css. I know I can inspect css with Google chrome or firebug, but currently I have no notification in my inbox :/ to analyse this html & css.

Ok, I asked here because I found this question… which was not closed as off topic. You can move to main SO, no problem, my mistake – nemke Mar 12 '11 at 19:55

use border-radius:50%; rather than 10px; for a circle that scales to whatever size your font is. – Spudley Mar 12 '11 at 22:03
