What Is CSS?

CSS is short for Cascading Style Sheets. This new feature is being added to HTML and gives both web site developers and users more control over how pages are displayed. With CSS, designers and users can create style sheets that define how different elements appear (like headers and links). These style sheets can then be applied to any web page.

Invented in 1997, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are widely used and is now the preferred method among professional web developers. The team at TheeDigital believes that designers that don’t use CSS are making a big mistake as tables are a thing of the past.

CSS is a style language that defines layout of HTML documents. HTML is used to structure content while CSS is used for formatting the structured content. This includes: fonts, colors, margins, lines, height, width, and background images.

HTML is commonly misused to add layout to websites. CSS offers more style options and is supported by all browsers (Firefox, Explorer, etc.) today.

The benefits of CSS are overwhelming compared to other methods, with the most important being – it’s easier and less work! Throw in that Google prefers them because it reduces loading time makes using CSS a no-brainer.
