Summary

In this chapter you learned the theory behind style sheets, why they’re recommended, and how they can be implemented on your pages. You learned what the Cascading Style Sheets specification is, as well as some of the XHTML elements, such as <span> and <div>, that work hand-in-hand with style sheet concepts. The second portion of this chapter was devoted to the myriad styles that can be used to dress up your pages, including text, font, background, and block properties. You learned some of the special pseudo classes, which can be used for special effects in style sheet-enhanced pages. And you learned some special ways that style sheet properties can be applied to HTML tables. Finally, you were introduced to the entity codes you can use in HTML documents to represent special characters.

In Chapter 11, “Advanced Web Images and Imagemaps,” you’ll learn a little more about Web images, including how to optimize them for quick downloading and how to turn them into clickable imagemaps.
