This chapter introduces the Cascading Style Sheets language (CSS), which is used to specify the layout and typography of Web pages. We show how to define rules in CSS to apply styling to selected elements of an XHTML document, the typographic effects that can be applied, and the ways of achieving control over the layout of elements on the screen.

Topics covered in this chapter include:

  • Rules in CSS
