23.5. Properties

The real meat of style sheets lies in the collection of properties that can be applied to selected elements. The properties reviewed in this chapter reflect those provided in the CSS Level 1 specification (CSS1). The CSS Level 2 specification, released in May 1998, contains many additional properties and additional values for existing properties (see "What's New in CSS2" later in this chapter). However, because current browsers are still struggling with bug-free and consistent support of CSS1, these properties should be enough to give you a good start in working with style sheets.

First, a disclaimer—the explanations provided here describe how each property ought to work according to the specification. Most of these will work differently on different browsers and many are not supported at all. For a listing of which browsers support which properties, see the charts in Appendix E.
