Cascading Stylesheets (CSS) let you control the formatting of your content and are one of the backbone technologies behind creating online information in RoboHelp. Learn the basic concepts of CSS - the hierarchy of how styles are applied from an external stylesheet, by embedding, and using the dreaded local or inline formatting.
- [Narrator] We're now ready to jump into formatting.…Formatting in a RoboHelp project is controlled by a file…called a cascading style sheet, or CSS.…So, CSS can seem esoteric and impenetrable…if you're new to it, with padding,…float, divs, overflows and more,…but if you understand the basic logic behind CSS…it starts to make sense.…So let's take a look at that logic.…We have two Topics here called Topic 1 and Topic 2.…
A Topic consists of a Head section and a Body section.…Users won't see what's in the Head section,…but the user material is in the Body section.…And you'll notice that each one of these Topics…has a Head1, one or more Head2's,…one or more P or paragraph tags,…and we need to control how this stuff looks.…So we do this in different ways.…The best way is to create a separate CSS,…or cascading style sheet file,…and I have one on the right called MyCSS.…
And I've specified that Head1 should be formatted…as Verdana 16 red, Head2 as Verdana 14 black,…and P, my paragraph tags, as Ariel 11 black.…That's it.…
