What Does CSS Do?

  • We will take a look at CSS and look at what it does on a web page
  • CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets
  • CSS is a listing of rules stored so the browser can access these rules
  • The rules tell the browser how to format and position the content on the page
  • Every browser has a way to turn off the CSS styles so you can view how the page would look within CSS being applied
  • In Firefox you can access the Firefox menu, choose Web Developer and select the Style Editor
  • We can use the Style Editor to turn styles on/off for the page by clicking the eye icon in front of the rule locations within the Style Editor
  • The word cascading is referencing the inheritance properties within CSS that can affect your styles
  • CSS positions and formats content on a web page
