Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) offer many advantages over standard HTML formatting when creating web pages. In its simplest and most widely used form, CSS is used for text formatting and for creating a uniform style sheet for your website. In its more complex forms, CSS is used to build and position floating layers and to format not only the text, but the entire layout, including background colors, background images, paragraph formats, and even printing. Every browser from version 4 on supports some level of CSS. As a matter of fact, the first rendition of CSS was referred to as CSS1 for Cascading Style Sheets Level 1. We are currently, at the time of this writing, at CSS2 and probably won't see a CSS3 because XML is going to take over in the near future. GoLive offers an easy-to-use, graphical interface, that makes creating cascading style sheets easier than ever. If you're creating websites and want complete control over the formatting of your pages, use CSS.
