What is CSS?

1. CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets.
2. CSS is the technology used to make the layout for WebPages.
3. CSS allows you to make changes to all of the web pages that link to the CSS file at once by changing a style in the style sheet. Instead of having to manually change every style in every HTML file.
4. They would save you a lot of time to say the least, especially if you have a large or multiple web sites.


The CSS syntax is made up of three parts: a selector, a property and a value:

Selector {property: value}

The selector is normally the HTML element/tag you wish to define, the property is the attribute you wish to change, and each property can take a value. The property and value are separated by a colon, and surrounded by curly braces:

body {color: black}

Cascading Stylesheets Advantages:

1. The content is separated from the design.
2. You site uses less bandwidth and loads faster.
