understanding stylesheets

Stylesheets work alongside HTML to define what a web page looks like. The HTML marks up the document structurally—indicating what bits of content are headlines, body text, lists, etc., while the stylesheets describe how the headlines and other elements should look in the web browser.

If you’ve worked with a page-layout program (like PageMaker or QuarkXpress), you’re probably familiar with stylesheets. They allow you to specify how particular types of words—headlines, for example—should appear throughout a document.
