The Beauty of CSS

CSS3 LogoThere are a lot of website designing firms that used to rely on HTML for designing their websites. However, whenever the designs needed to be changed, it was beyond difficult to make all of the necessary changes to the pages of the websites. By this being so, a lot of firms wasted no time in turning to the best alternative that offered the ultimate solution around this problem. That alternative was (CSS) Cascading Style Sheets. This will allow the ability of making any changes to all of the pages for any website.

To simplify the overall process of formatting HTML documents, a lot of website designing firms has made using Cascading Style Sheets a priority. Before Cascading Style Sheets ever came into existence, when it came to characterizing tables, paragraphs, fonts, and headers, HTML tags used to be applied. Once all of the HTML tags were applied, the web browser would then read all of these HTML tags and turn it into a HTML formatted web page for the user. Within the HTML and content on the website, various tags for different structures of formatting were embedded. As the family of HTML tags continued to increase rapidly, all of the website companies found it to become more and more difficult to handle the website and its content presentation. With the introduction of (CSS) Cascading Style Sheets, there is now a solid platform for separating the content from website style.

One of the many benefits of Cascading Style Sheets is that it will allow any designer to fully manage a lot of pages all at the same time for making any changes to the formatting and content. When it comes to using CSS for website design, the overall popularity of Cascading Style Sheets is steadily growing and getting stronger day by day. By website designing companies staying on top of things by continuously adopting the latest versions, it proves the previous statement to be more than true. After experiencing the versions CSS1 and CSS2, CSS3 has been developed and is now modularized.

There are a lot of different ways for the CSS to be sourced for the HTML page in a web browser. Even though the use of Cascading Style Sheets has helped with simplifying a lot of things for both website companies and developers, it still comes with a few limitations that most certainly should be considered before and (or) while using it. The following information will list some of the limitations of Cascading Style Sheets:

The browser support for CSS is not standardized and few browsers that have old versions are not capable of deciphering the style tags. This is what prevents the desired website layout from being achieved.

Designers will have to compromise on the website visual effect, because it is not (yet) possible to use different backgrounds for each element of graphic.

CSS only have support for a perfect rectangle shape.

Nevertheless, the limitations are currently being worked on within the CSS3 version, so the expectations of reaping more benefits are higher than ever before.
