CSS is the language of style and design, and stands for Cascading Style Sheets. CSS allows you to specify how you want your HTML elements to look.
CSS is built up of three parts: the selector, or the element you wish to style (
body, h1, p etc.); the style properties of a given element (
font-size, text-align etc.); and lastly the different values of these properties (
14px, blue, center etc.). We wrap the properties in curly brackets so the browser knows when the style properties start and end for the selector. That's CSS in a nutshell. All of CSS is based of these three concepts.
