What is CSS?
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. It is a style sheet language that is used to describe the presentation of Web pages written in a Markup language. CSS is used with HTML to change the style of web pages and user interfaces. CSS allows us to change the size, style, font, colour of text, background colours, border styles and many more. It provides additional features to HTML. CSS is easy to learn and understand. Since HTML is a markup language and CSS emphasizes style, they go hand in hand together.
Why CSS is Important?
CSS is very important for us because it controls all design-related aspects of the website. If you have the proper knowledge of CSS you can do anything we want on our Website. Benefits of CSS, including:
Faster Page Speed
More code means slower page speed. CSS enables you to use less code. CSS allows you to use one CSS rule and apply it to all HTML documents.
