CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is the best and preferred style sheet language used these days for presentation of markup language (HTML) and is well known to be very web designer friendly. Primarily this is because it keeps the design criteria separate from the web page content. It is used to define a web page’s colors, fonts, style, layout, and the like. Thus unlike the conventional table based page layouts (unfortunately they are still around) CSS has made it possible to include more relevant and better page content at the same time allowing more advantages to the web site owner. Some of the obvious advantages of CSS based website design are,
- High search engine visibility due to reduced use of tags
- Quick changes to design can be made
- Fast load time
- Control over web pages
- Easy accessibility for devices like PDAs, mobiles, etc
- Simple coding
Who maintains the CSS specifications? Well it is maintained by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). CSS also has certain disadvantages and the most important among them is the fact that it is not fully supported by all web browsers.
