Why you should program in CSS
A lot of people ask me why I am even learning CSS and how is it going to enhance my skills in web programming. Well studying CSS, is quite not hard but the experience you gain from it can make YOU go beyond your imaginations. Right now, Am going to give YOU some reasons as usual two reasons why YOU sh'ld program or write CSS codes.
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheet, CSS defines how HTML elements are to be displayed with External Style Sheets stored in CSS files. The below gives YOU two reasons why You sh'ld write or get involve in CSS coding.
First, CSS has come to bridge a big gap that existed in the HTML document. Before, HTML documents discussed in my previous tuts, where intended to contain tags for formatting a document or html document. These tags where font tag, h1 tag and so on. As a result, to solve this problem, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) created CSS. Now YOU could write codes that decorates, changes, effects and make slideshows and give the beauty of your website or web page. You are still asking the second reason? Then look below!
Lastly, CSS Saves a Lot of Work. That is, CSS can be internal, external, as inline but with an external style sheet file ie, external, you can change the look of an entire Web site by changing just one file. The CSS file is saved with an extension of .css. That is, while you are creating the HTML, you can just style it in the .css file and you get the whole website change into your commands. Is that not awesome guys??
Are you now motivated to program or write codes in CSS? Am sure YES!
Thank you for your kind attention!
