Chapter 14. Building Style Sheets and Dy... > Using Cascading Style Sheets

Using Cascading Style Sheets

Style sheets come in three varieties: external style sheets control styles across multiple pages or an entire Web site, embedded style sheets control styles for individual pages, and inline styles control individual page elements. Put them all together and you have the coding rules that create Cascading Style Sheets.

With CSS you can define in one place exactly how you want all of your headings to appear on every page, right down to the size and color. At the same time, if you like, you can create a special heading style for a particular page—without disturbing your site-wide styles. That’s the cascading part of CSS, which contains a set of definitions dictating which style takes precedence. In FrontPage, for example, if a single page contains inline styles, embedded styles, and a link to an external style sheet, the inline style comes first and the external style sheet last.
