Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) were introduced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to bring order to the chaos that was created by the browser wars. To make a long story short, Netscape and Microsoft were creating HTML tags specific only to their browsers which made trying to display content similarly a nightmare. The W3C recommended guidelines solved the problem by creating standard specifications that all browsers can use.

The term cascading means that once a style is defined and another style is specified within those parameters, the content retains all of the first style as well as the second style.

Using style sheets provides the following benefits:
  • Simple mechanism for adding style to web documents
  • Global style changes can be made quickly and easily
  • Faster loading pages
  • Multiple style definitions cascade into one
