Chapter 2. Mastering CSS > Building Your Style Sheets

Building Your Style Sheets

Putting together the styles for your Web site takes more than just spewing a few CSS rules onto a page. It’s not like you have to create a detailed plan of your CSS structure before you start coding, but as you work, you need to consider where the definitions go. Sometimes this is a practical matter, since the exact order can determine the final appearance of your designs.

Beyond considering how the order affects the final appearance of your design, it’s also important to categorize your styles systematically simply to help you locate them while you make changes. If you’re designing a large, complex site, you may have dozens or even hundreds of different style rules. If they’re simply on the page, you can waste a lot of time tracking down the one you need to alter.
