"Cascading Style Sheets"
An degenerating technology, designed to seperate Content from Style, in webdesign, when most internet connections used 16k bits/sec dialup modems.
A good example of 'designed by committee'. It is now unwieldy, bloated, inefficient, fundamentally flawed, unnecessary, and a hinderence to progress.
Just like the Mac vs PC arguments, there are numerous loud fans of css, proving a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.
wanabee-geek: OMG, you can't use tables in your website. You should spend an extra week doing that 10minute job in CSS.
- i've got deadlines.
- my design works in ALL browsers, ever!
- its future proof.
wanabee-geek: yes butt, yes butt, with my hacks and my reverse exceptions, and a lot of time, i can do almost the same - and i can change the style across the entire site.
professional-geek:my clients have branding. my sites are dynamic. oh fuck it - get educated or drop dead!

Cascading Style Sheets. An extension to HTML which are most often used to set default styles so that the equivalent HTML code does not need to be retyped. It is also used for its method of positioning- items can be set above others and screen-proportional settings don't apply. Among the tags that were deprecated in favour of CSS is the famous FONT tag, but it is so useful it will never be completely written out. Interesting, CSS does not set font sizes by HTML standards (1 to 7) but as pixel-based sizes, like those used in word processors. CSS can be specified in the HTML code itself in the head tag, or linked to from a separate file - a remote style sheet. As well as these to methods, a single element can be specified with CSS styles by using the 'style' attribute in the tag. This only affects the tag the attribute is used in that one time. As far as I am aware, CSS is the only way to set a division to overflow.
The structure of CSS is similar to that of HTML, except triangular brackets are replaced with 'squiggly' parenthesis - "{" and "}". The tag itself is outside of the brackets, however, unlike HTML. The equals-sign is replaced with a colon, and quotes are implied until a semi-colon. Attributes must be ended with a semi-colon, therefore.

An extension to HTML to allow styles, e.g. colour, font, size to be specified for certain elements of a hypertext document. Style information can be included in-line in the HTML file or in a separate CSS file (which can then be easily shared by multiple HTML files). Multiple levels of CSS can be used to allow selective overriding of styles.
You should stop using tables and switch to CSS to align your website!
