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.
There are three types of cascading style sheets:
- 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 open page in Microsoft FrontPage.
Inline Style Sheets
You can use inline style sheet properties when you want to define
styles for individual elements of a page.
