What is CSS? – Definition

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a style sheet language that describes the style of the HTML document.  It describes how HTML elements are displayed on a page. CSS saves a lot of work as it may control the layout of multiple pages at once. Style formatting is usually saved in a separate .css file. Thanks to this, you can modify the layout of the whole site by changing only one file.

CSS Syntax

What is CSS

  • The selector indicates the HTML element that you intend to style.
  • The declaration block consists of one or several declarations, all of which are always separated by semicolons.
  • All declarations contain the CSS property name and values which are separated by colons.
  • Declarations always end with a semicolon, and declaration blocks are surrounded by curly brackets.
