Introduction to CSS
What is CSS?
Cascading: Multiple styles can overlap in order to specify a range of style from a whole web site down to a unique element. Which style gets applied pertains to the rules of CSS cascading logic.
Style: CSS deals specifically with the Presentation domain of designing a web page (color, font, layout, etc).
Sheet: Normally, CSS is a file separate from the HTML file –linked to the HTML file through its <head> (exceptions apply).
Allows for much richer document appearances than HTML.
Reduce workload by centralizing commands for visual appearance instead of scattered throughout the HTML doc.
- Use same style on multiple pages.
- Reduce page download size.
