Cascading Style Sheet (CSS)

What is Cascading Style Sheet (CSS)

A style sheet format which allows users to separate their websites’ HTML and XHTML content from its style presentation. All of the presentation elements like font, color, background, formatting, layout, and more are created and accomplished through the CSS.

The term cascading is used because CSS allows multiple rules to apply to a single element, but only applies a single rule based upon a priority scheme. This allows the implementation of CSS to be standardized and predictable across an unlimited amount of web pages.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) developed and maintains international standards for CSS.


Advantages of Cascading Style Sheets

  • Ability to quickly implement and change styling across a large amount of web pages.
  • Ensures site wide consistency of styling.
  • Reduces web server load by eliminating the data transfer of redundant styling information.
