Web Design II for Designers :: Lessons :: CSS
CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is a style sheet language that describes the look of an HTML or XHTML document. The purpose of CSS is to separate content (text, graphics, etc.) from presentation (font color, positioning, etc). Web browsers that are CSS-compliant must follow the CSS rules so web developers know what to expect. The first fully CSS-compliant browser was Internet Explorer 5.0 for the Macintosh. The Opera browser followed soon after. Today, all modern browsers support the CSS1 and CSS 2 standards, and they all are at different levels of support for CSS3. You can go to W3Schools to see which CSS3 elements are supported by different web browsers.
While you should have a bit of an understanding of CSS from Web Design I, this course requires you to be a master of CSS since you will be designing web applications for use by the Yorkville community. The W3Schools website is the best resource for you to use to learn CSS. In fact, you are going to use it to learn everything you can about CSS.
Complete the following tutorials from the W3Schools website. You should take no more than three class periods to do so.
