    CSS is one of the main technologies at the heart of the Web. HTML files contain roughly structured content; CSS takes that content and makes it look the way you want.

    CSS stands for Cascading style sheet. You can write CSS code inside <style> tags, but you would normally write a separate .css file to keep the website's look and feel separate from the content. CSS follows pre-defined rules to associate styles with HTML tags using selectors. We suggest you start with the following pages to pick up some skills and learn how to use CSS properly.
