Styling the Web

There can be no doubt that on the web style is king - while it might be content that gets the visitors coming back, it is style that ensures they take a look in the first place. Fortunately, there exists a very effective means of adding this style to your pages; a method known as CSS, or cascading style sheets.

Now for the first time with you can use the latest technologies with confidence - whereas before you would have been ill-advised to rely on style sheets for styling your pages, you can now afford to use them on all your pages and reap all the many benefits that they bring. This is thanks to's exhaustive bug pages, which detail nearly 1000 bugs, all organized into easy-to-read sections, as well as to its bug table, which provides at-a-glance access to information.

And, if that wasn't enough, also provides help on key areas of web style - areas such as styling of links, effects with margins (such as hanging indents), fonts and line heights, and, most importantly, how to ensure that your styles work perfectly on every browser.

If you still want more, provides free stuff, such as the MySite script, which allows your users to view your site the way they want to see it, by remembering their chosen style and then giving the appropriate style sheet when they view your page.

And guess what? That isn't all - also provides what is without doubt the most complete, easy to understand and useful CSS guide in the known universe. If that doesn't satisfy you, why not learn HTML with's guide to HTML. Even if you have used HTML before, you are sure to find something new here.

But wait! There's more - if you want to see how buggy your web browser really is, why not check out the test pages - they are far more thorough than anything else available.

If you are new to CSS or HTML, I suggest you start with one of the the tutorials. If you are not, you'll know already what they offer, so why not start with the page of your choice.
