HTML Code: In this section, we have heading wrapped inside a <h1> tag. We also have a span which will populate later using CSS.
- Step 1: Do some basic style like background-color, text-color, margins, padding etc.
- Step 2: Now, use before select/or to set the content of span to an initial word.
- Step 3: Use animation property to set the total time for the animation.
- Step 4: Now, use keyframes to change the content property that was set in before selector for each frame.
Tip: You can set the total time according to need. But generally, it is recommended to use a time which is a multiple of the total number of words that you want to change.

Setting time as multiple of the total number of words will ensure that each word gets displayed for an equal amount of time.
