2. Quick Start > Style Sheets and JavaScript

Style Sheets and JavaScript

Browsers also have support for two powerful innovations to HTML: style sheets and JavaScript. Like their desktop-publishing cousins, style sheets let you control how your web pages look — text font styles and sizes, colors, backgrounds, alignments, and so on. More importantly, style sheets give you a way to impose display characteristics uniformly over the entire document and over an entire collection of documents.

JavaScript is a programming language with functions and commands that let you control how the browser behaves for the user. Now, this is not a JavaScript programming book, but we do cover the language in fair detail in later chapters to show you how to embed JavaScript programs into your documents and achieve some very powerful and fun effects.
