What is CSS?

The CSS programming language

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets, meaning cascading style sheets. It is an essential coding language used to configure the style of Web pages. CSS allows to create aesthetic pages by modifying the appearance of various elements. These include font style, color, layout, and more.

The CSS language is used to control the presentation of HTML markup mainly in two ways:

External style sheets: the CSS is contained in a separate css file that can be linked to multiple web pages. This is the most common method of applying CSS.

Internal Style Sheets: the CSS is included in an HTML document, within <style> tags, or applied directly to the content using the HTML styleattribute.
