Hour 16. Using Style Sheets > CSS1 Versus CSS2

CSS1 Versus CSS2

There are actually two different languages to choose from when you make a style sheet. The one I recommend you use is called cascading style sheets, level 1 (CSS1), since it is compatible with both Netscape Navigator 4 (or later) and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 (or later). The new CSS2 standard is only partially implemented in the current crop of browsers, and neither Netscape nor Microsoft is currently claiming that its next version will fully support CSS2. They do already support some parts of CSS2, such as the capability to precisely position text and graphics on the page (discussed under "Specifying Inline Styles" later in this hour).

You'll find a complete reference guide to both the CSS1 and CSS2 style sheet languages at http://www.w3c.org. The rest of this hour explains how to put the information from those reference documents to use in a way that is compatible with the current generation of Web browsers.
