SUMMARY

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) allow Web site authors more control over the appearance and presentation of their Web pages. They extend the ability to precisely specify the location and appearance of elements on a page and create special effects. Cascading Style Sheets contain specific code that the browser interprets and applies to the Web page and Web page elements.

MORE INFORMATION

There are three types of Cascading Style Sheets. These are:
  • External Style Sheets
  • Embedded Style Sheets
  • Inline Style Sheets

External Style Sheets

You can use an external style sheet when you want to apply the same style consistently throughout your Web site. Typically, an external style sheet uses the .css file extension (for example, Mystyle.css). You can edit the .css file in any text editor, such as Notepad.

Embedded Style Sheets

You can use an embedded style sheet when you want to define styles only for the active page in FrontPage Editor.

Inline Style Sheets

You can use inline style sheet properties when you want to define styles for individual elements of a page.
