The Power of CSS!

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

What is CSS?

Short for Cascading Style Sheets. CSS allows for fast changes in look and feel without having to plunge in to the HTML file(s). With CSS, when you want to make a change, you simply change the style, and that element is updated automatically wherever it appears within the site. For example; A CSS file might specify that all numbered lists are to appear in italics. By changing that single specification the look of a large number of documents (Web pages) can be easily changed.

What does all this mean to you?

There are many real-world practical applications for the use of Cascading Style Sheets in your Web site. For example; Why do most Web sites have the same old look for long periods of time? Well for one reason, it can be expensive to design and develop a completely new Web site whenever you want a fresh look. If you had the ability to apply a new Cascading Style Sheet to your Web site, you could change from one look to another any time you wanted that fresh look.
