CSS – Formatting Made Easy

CSS is a style sheet language that is used to describe the style of an HTML or an XML document. It describes how the HTML or XML elements should be displayed on screen. It can also be used to describe the visual style on paper, in speech and other media. Some of the layouts that it deals with are colours, lines, height, margins, positioning, and fonts. Essentially, with CSS, you can format structured content and give it any presentation you want. VOVA, Coventry, an established name in web design and development, works with CSS to format web pages to suit the brand of the business and exhibit its professionalism.

CSS3 has been split into smaller modules, including selectors, background and borders, text effects, 2D/3D transformations, and animations.
