Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

CSS also known as cascading style sheets is the name of the visual markup language. This determines the visual look of most websites.

HTML and CSS somewhat partner which each other to determine the overall look of websites. CSS is easy to learn and can enhance websites dramatically.

To get started, I’m going to show you guys 2 examples of some CSS code. The first example is CSS in an internal html page. Second example is CSS on an external html page. Both methods works perfectly, but the second example is used more in websites with a lot of pages.

Don't worry about what some of the code looks like. I Just want you to understand how to place the CSS into pages.

Internal CSS:

<head>
<title>My first styled page</title> 
<style type="text/css">
CSS code goes between the style tags.
</style>
</head>
<body>

External Style Sheet:

The link to the style sheets go between the head tags. We will talk more about this in the upcoming days.

<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mystyle.css" />
 <title>My first styled page</title>
</head>
<body>
</html>

Please give us some feedback on how we're doing. We appreciate all the support from the community.
