CSS

CSS is the acronym for Cascading Style Sheets.

What is Cascading Style Sheets?

A powerful tool for web designers and developers, allowing them to control the look and layout of multiple web pages simultaneously. It can be used in three ways: inline, in the header (internal), and as an attached stylesheet file (external). Each method has its use case and advantages.

Inline CSS

This method involves placing CSS rules directly within an HTML element, using the “style” attribute. Each HTML element can have its own style attribute, containing any number of CSS properties.

<p style="color: blue; font-size: 14px;">This is a blue, 14px font paragraph.</p>

Internal CSS

Here, CSS rules are placed within a <style> tag in the head section of an HTML document. This method is used to define styles for a single page.

<head>
   <style>
      p { color: blue; font-size: 14px; } 
   </style>
</head>

External CSS

This is the most common and recommended way to include CSS. The CSS rules are placed in a separate file (with a .css extension) and linked to the HTML document using a <link> element in the head section.

<head>
   <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">
</head>

The choice of CSS implementation can impact website performance, maintenance, and user experience. Efficient use of CSS, primarily external stylesheets, can create a consistent brand image, improve loading times, and enhance the website’s overall appeal to potential customers.
