Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is an essential part of XHTML and web design and scripting. CSS is the powerful layout and design language of choice on the Internet. Extremely flexible, fast loading, easy to write, with increasingly solid support from graphical web browsers, this tool is a must-have in your toolbox. CSS is a simple mechanism for adding additional display properties to structured documents such as HTML/XHTML. It offers greater control and flexibility, similar to traditional print layout, for a much richer document appearance. By separating the presentation style of documents from the document content, CSS simplifies web authoring and site maintenance. In this hands-on coding class, students learn to take advantage of CSS for visual formatting, including text, fonts, colors and backgrounds, boxes and borders, lists, and simple positioning. Prerequisite: Must have taken EDTEC 459 XHTML/HTML5 Coding before taking this class, or have department approval.
