what is CSS; why use CSS
CSS or Cascading Style Sheets, when
attached to an HTML documents describe how the document
to users via a web browser.
Cascading Style Sheets
enable you to change the
appearance and layout of all the pages in your Website,
just by editing a single CSS document. You can define a style
for each HTML element (like text, links, images) and apply
it to as
many Web pages as you want.
To make a global change, simply
change the style, and all elements in the Web are updated
automatically. For example, if you have a multipages
web site and you need to change the text colors, it’s
a simple change to one CSS file.
When you design a web page
using CSS, the same information can be displayed many
ways - for print, with larger or smaller type, or for a PDA.
Using style sheets can save you a
lot of time, keep equal style for all elements on a
website, give a possibility to see your website in any
limited screens as well as
keep your html code clean for search engines.
