Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a Web styling format.

CSS is an important technology in the modern Web, where many characteristics of the presentation of a site are specified including fonts, colors, and special effects. Some of these things were formerly done using now-deprecated HTML elements and attributes such as the "font" element.

Page layout can also be specified using CSS, replacing older techniques of using tables for layout, but some developers still find tables easier to learn than CSS layout.
