CSS for beautiful and unique web pages
So, what is CSS? Well, CSS or "Cascading Style Sheets" is a programing language that was developed in 1996 by World Wide Web Consortium. Before that, all websites were very limited and boring. CSS allows you to fill sites with vibrant colors, beautiful backgrounds, different fancy fonts and more! Using CSS, you can also work with animations and 3D effects. Therefore, knowing some CSS tricks is useful not only for web developers or programmers but also graphic designers, photographers, writers and even non-profit organizations.
CSS is a standard programming language for designing web pages. All popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Safari support it. Therefore, if your site is programmed using CSS, you can breathe with ease. It will look good and be easily accessible on almost any browser without inappropriately displayed parts. Furthermore, nowadays many websites are visited using mobile devices. CSS allows you to keep a consistent and tidy look on all sorts of gadgets too!
CSS and HTML - the Inseparable Pair
CSS and HTML are programming languages that are very crucial when building an internet site. HTML is like an architect. It's used to give websites their structure by telling a browser what every little detail on the site is. Meanwhile, CSS is like an interior designer. It's used to enhance your website visually.
A website built with only HTML might look a bit dull compared to the one created using both languages. That's why it's good to know at least a few CSS tricks. If you don't know either language yet, that's perfectly fine. The good news is both HTML and CSS have relatively simple syntaxes. Either one of them is a great first programming language to learn. And the bad news... Well, there is none!
If you decide you'd prefer to begin with HTML, there is a short tutorial for you on this website too! If you're sticking with CSS, let's not waste any time. Start learning those slick CSS tricks with the help of this straight to the point tutorial now!
