What Are Cascading Style Sheets?

Cascading style sheets, commonly referred to as "CSS," are documents within a web site that define all the website styles (e.g., font, font size, font color, page width, background color, background image, header size, alignment, etc.) within the site. CSS files are named with a css file extension—for example, "style.css."

Having one style sheet allows you to streamline the html code on your pages, making it easier for the search engines to spider your pages, thereby boosting your rankings. It also makes it possible for you to change styles throughout the site easily, rather than having to manually go to each page and change each occurrence of a style.

Style sheets can be quite ornate, depending on the requirements of the website.
