    The animation-name CSS property specifies a list of animations that should be applied to the selected element. Each name indicates a @keyframes at-rule that defines the property values for the animation sequence.

    It is often convenient to use the shorthand property animation to set all animation properties at once.

    Is a special keyword denoting no keyframes. It can be used to deactivate an animation without changing the ordering of the other identifiers, or to deactivate animations coming from the cascade.
    A string identifying the animation. This identifier is composed by a combination of case-insensitive letters a to z, numbers 0 to 9, underscores (_), and/or dashes (-). The first non-dash character must be a letter (that is, no number at the beginning of it, even if preceded by a dash.) Also, two dashes are forbidden at the beginning of the identifier. It can't be none, unset, initial, or inherit in any combination of cases.
