Chapter 11. Introducing CSS > About the CSS Specs

About the CSS Specs

There are three specifications altogether. CSS1, which specifies text formatting, was standardized in December 1996. CSS-P (where the "P" stands for "positioning") was first introduced in January 1997. CSS2 was standardized in May 1998 as a fusion of the previous two standards, encompassing both formatting and positioning. As of this writing, going on three years after the last standard was adopted, no shipping browser fully supports all of these standards. But Internet Explorer versions 5.x and later for both Mac and Windows do a pretty-good-to-excellent job of displaying CSS, as does Netscape 6.x. Netscape 4.x's support is spotty, at best; it does fine with simple styles, but can render pages incorrectly or even crash with more complexly styled pages.

Script 11.1. This limited text formatting uses standard HTML.
