Introduction: CSS3 Web Design

Getting Started With CSS3 Web Design, Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS is a language used to specify the visual appearance of a Web page in contrast to HTML (HyperText Markup Language), which is a markup language that defines the structure of a document for distribution on the Web. HTML tells a Web browser how the content is organized on the page, whereas CSS3 Web Design tells the browser how it should look.

CSS3 Web Design, an abbreviation for CSS Level 3, is the next generation of this styling language that adds several new capabilities. It may still be under development by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), but CSS3 Web Design has already taken its place alongside HTML5 at the forefront of all cutting-edge Web design.

What Is a Style?

Word processors allow writers to change text appearance word by word or paragraph by paragraph, as well as in an entire document by means of styles. Styles combine multiple properties such as weight, font family, italicization, color, and size that you want to apply to similar text types titles, headers, captions, and so on and group these properties under a common name.
