Designers Corner

As you've seen in this chapter, style sheets are an extremely powerful tool for the design, layout, and modification of Web pages. The ability to change the entire look of a Web site with a relatively small number of style specifications has been a great boon to page designers.

When you're analyzing the best ways to apply CSS to your Web pages, try to mentally separate the content of the pages from their presentation. Where possible, place the presentation specifications (such as margins, colors, methods of text emphasis, paragraph formatting, and so on) in style sheets. Reserve the HTML pages for content as much as you can, while minimizing the amount of presentation information you incorporate into these pages. This isolation of form and content makes it easier to modify either the form or the content independently. This in turn makes Web site and document maintenance less of a headache.
