Cascading Style Sheets, commonly known as CSS, is a widespread language for adding style to web pages written in different markup languages like HTML or XHTML. Using CSS for styling is a solid performing web design method used to achieve content accessibility, style flexibility, and a useful tool to reduce the complexity of the design structure.
How about you – are you ready to venture into the new technologies of web development? We have noticed there has been some reluctance in adhering to CSS3 styles, mainly because of issues with cross browser compatibility, and because it is still an ever expanding technique. However, CSS style sheet technique has numerous advantages. And we believe it is the most efficient tool in web design for the following reasons:
- CSS method helps both designers and developers to separate presentations from structures and publish content in multiple presentation formats, based on preferences, browsers, or Internet devices.
- CSS style sheet is flexible and consistent – you can make a change to a global CSS style sheet and automatically change style elements in other web pages. CSS enables designers and developers to maintain their web pages easily and efficiently while having a website that looks consistent.
- CSS is search engine friendly and is also considered a clean coding technique – with CSS you will have more content than code, which is great for improved ranking by search engines.
We think the web needs to stay innovative and challenging – and technologies like CSS3 and HTML5, although new and continually expanding, should be proactively implemented. Soon, all other web technologies will follow.
