Join Paul Trani for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing the style, part of Creating a First Web Site with Dreamweaver CS6.
As you start to add content to your HTML page, you're going to want to start…controlling all the visual aspects of it, and luckily you can do that with cascading style sheets.…Well, what are those?…Well, they're a style sheet language used to describe the design of an HTML document.…Also just called CSS, and with this CSS you can control all these visual aspects…of the content, and you can actually have it separate, because the CSS can…separate the content from the design.…Take for instance an HTML page, you might have the content at the bottom and…all the CSS will exist at the top, and that will control all the visual aspects of that HTML page.…
But know you can also have those CSS styles external from the HTML page, so you…have the external page that you can work on, and it will affect that HTML page…that is linking to it.…Taking that a step further, you can have that one CSS page, and it could…actually affect many different HTML pages, so you can have one CSS file that all…the HTML pages are pointing to that affects the entire site.…
