Cascading Style Sheets
Cascading Style Sheets - Otherwise known as CSS
A scripting language used to describe the presentation of structured documents. A structured document is a document whose sections are clearly defined and categorized. A program presenting the document can present it in different styles because the content has been categorized. One common style sheet language with widespread use is CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), which is used to style documents written in HTML, XHTML, SVG, XUL, and other markup languages. One of the most attractive features of structured documents is that the content can be reused in many contexts and presented in various ways. Different style sheets can be attached to the logical structure to produce different presentations.
