Cascading Style Sheet CSS Tutorial:
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language describing the appearance (formatting) of an html document like background images, font styles and sizes. It is used; to decrease the amount of source code on a page allowing faster download speeds; to improve different web browser compatibility; to enable multiple pages to share the same formatting; an increased range of formatting options and quicker synchronized updating of multiple web pages. For this reasons html formatting has been phased out (depreciated) and is being replaced by CSS. This tutorial uses the MS notepad editor to create an external Cascading Style Sheet file (.css).
To follow these instructions you need a basic knowledge of HTML (Hyper Text Mark-up Language) or have completed the 3 Basic HTML Tutorials, which you can download from our web site. (See links under the Tutorials Menu)
