Cascading Stylesheets (CSS)

With the push toward XHTML standards, incorporating CSS or Cascading Style Sheets, will be key in handling all your layout, positioning, colorations and appearance of your information.

CSS is a specification developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) that provides a simple mechanism for adding styles to Web documents. CSS defines a fixed set of presentation controls and formats associated with Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) elements. It can also control presentation of Extensible Markup Language (XML) elements embedded in an HTML text stream, but only when they are identical to the HTML elements defined within CSS. A presentation standard better-suited to XML's extensibility is provided in W3C's Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL).
