What Is CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)?
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a technical specification that allows HTML document authors
to attach formatting style sheets to HTML documents. When HTML documents are viewed as Web pages through
Web browsers, the attached style sheets will alter the default style sheets embedded in browsers.

sheet, while the reader may have a personal style sheet to adjust for human or technological handicaps.
