As we all know that today for a beginner to start a business it is very important to build a website or a web application. The website means to teach the world the advantages of your product. Nowadays presentation and layout of your web page is very important for the client. So that’s why CSS plays an important role.
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheet is a style sheet language that gives a presentation of a markup language like XHTML or HTML. It is mostly used for presenting the web pages written in XHTML or HTML.
CSS was developed by W3C (WWW Consortium) when a problem arose in two mega web Browsers i.e. Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator, when they continued adding many HTML Specification and HTML Tags and it was very difficult to design Web Pages because the content of presentation layout and HTML document were evidently separated. In this era all the Web browsers are supporting CSS because its effectiveness saves a lot of time. W3C maintains all the specification of CSS.
The function of a CSS is to define the way in which it wants to display the various HTML elements. Many styles of font color, font size and font type are stored in a separate .CSS file, with that .CSS file you employ changes in the style of all HTML elements, without even going through your all web pages. In a nutshell it gives you a hold on multiple web pages to employ changes in their format and style.
