More and more web   developers are ditching tables and coming round to the
idea of using CSS   to control the layout of their site. With the many
benefits of using   CSS, such as quicker download time, improved
accessibility and   easier site management, it has gained wider acceptance.

The Cascading Style Sheets is a stylesheet language used to describe the
presentation of a document written in a markup language like HTML and
XML. It is used to enable readers of web pages to define colors, fonts,
layout and other aspects of objects present on the web page. By reading
various articles posted on css-faq.com, you can acquire good knowledge
about this language.

CSS has a simple syntax and uses English keywords to specify the names of
various style properties. For a beginner, it is very easy to understand.
A style sheet consists of a set of rules. Each rule or rule-set consists
of one or more selectors and a declaration block. A declaration-block
consists of a list of semicolon-terminated declarations in curly braces.
Each declaration itself consists of a property, a colon (:), a value,
then a semi-colon (;).

Before the introduction of <a href= “http://www.css-faq.com/”> CSS
mistakes</a>, all the attributes related to the presentation aspects were
written within the markup language. This resulted in lengthy HTML code.
There was also repetition of tasks leading to wastage of time and space.
But, Cascading Style Sheets allows authors to move much of that
information to a separate stylesheet resulting in considerably simpler
HTML markup. So you will get faster downloading of web pages.

Historically the main problem with using CSS has been lack of browser
support. This is no longer the case as version 5 browsers, which all have
good support for CSS, now account for over 99% of browsers in use.
Instead, the problem is that browsers can sometimes interpret its
commands in different ways, causing developers to throw their arms up in
the air and switch back to pixel-perfect table layouts.But by learning
more about this stylesheet language you'll slowly start to understand the
different browser interpretations and realise that the drawbacks aren't
really that many.
