What is Adobe Dreamweaver?
Introduction to CSS
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets and is a style sheet language used for describing the presentation of a document written in markup language. A style sheet is a collection of rules that tells a web browser how to display text, fonts, colors, images, and other content. Unlike HTML, which is the markup language used to create pages on the World Wide Web, CSS is used to control the presentation of documents written in a markup language.
