  • Cascading style sheets (css) — Cascading Style Sheets is a technique built into version 4.0 and later browsers that support styles for pages. For example, you can set up styles for fonts and page layouts that will apply automatically to pages developed under a particular style you develop. This technique is useful, but the present version browsers from Microsoft (in particular) and other browser designers are quite different in their implementation, and what works with one is not likely to work for the other. For compatibility, care has to be taken to use common elements.
