CSS: The Basics

CSS: The Basics

So you have an interest in learning more about CSS and how it can help you advance your web design and computer programing skills. While CSS is a foundational part of the modern web and has changed the way developers design and style websites.

What is CSS:

CSS or Cascading Style Sheets defines the look and feel of a HTML document. While the HTML document describes the structure of the web pages the CSS controls the look.

Why Use CSS?

The number one reason web developers use CSS files is to separate the website style from the websites structure. CSS allows for changes throughout a website to all be changed at the same time through the CSS document.

Declaration Block

A simple CSS syntax includes the selector, property and value

h1 {color: black;}

or more commonly written

h1 {

color:black;

}

in the above CSS syntax the

selector = h1 
property = color
value = black

knowing the structure of a CSS syntax is important in structuring any Cascading Style Sheet correctly. There are many different properties that you can get familiar with to help design your website with CSS.

Combined with HTML

Combined with HTML, CSS is a great tool to help build professional website designs. After you have learned the HTML and CSS it is recommended that you learn Javascript which will open up new website features for building out interactive websites.
