6.3 Use of style sheets
What is CSS?
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) describe how documents are presented on screen or in print. When combined with structural markup language such as HTML, XHTML, or XML, the CSS provides Internet browsers with the information that enables them to present all the visual aspects and elements of a Web document.
An example of CSS code:
The presentational effects that can be applied using CSS includes the layout of all the page elements such as the banner, the menus and the content. Also, the formatting of all content such as font type, font size, spacing between paragraphs, positioning of images, background colours etc.
Extensible Style sheet Language Transformations (XSLT) is a language for transforming XML. An XSLT style sheet specifies the presentation of a class of XML documents by describing how an instance of the class is transformed into an XML document that uses a formatting vocabulary, such as (X)HTML or XSL-FO.
