What is CSS?

Cascading Style Sheets, also called CSS, is a simple design language designed to simplify the process of making web pages look great.

CSS treats look and feel as part of a web page. Using CSS, you can control text color, font style, division between categories, how columns are sorted and laid out, what background images or colors are used, layout designs, display variations for different devices and screen sizes. and various other effects.

CSS is easy to read and understand but provides powerful control over the presentation of HTML text. Typically, CSS is combined with HTML or XHTML markup languages.

 

Why Use CSS?

CSS is used to describe the styles of your web pages, including the design, layout and variations displayed on different devices and screen sizes.

Here are three major benefits of CSS:

1.It solves a big problem

Prior to CSS, tags such as font, color, background, element alignment, border and size had to be repeated on all web pages. This was a very long process. Example: If you develop a large website where fonts and color information are added to each page, it will be a long and expensive process. CSS was created to resolve this issue. It was a W3C recommendation.

2.Save your time

CSS style descriptions are stored in external CSS files so you may have to change the entire website by changing just one file.

3.Provide additional features

CSS provides features that are more detailed than plain HTML to define the look and feel of a website.
