Advantages of CSS
CSS saves lots of time ? You write CSS once and then reuse same code in multiple HTML pages. You can define a style for each HTML element and apply it to as many Web pages as you want.
Reduce Page size and Loads Site Faster ? If you are using CSS, you do not need to write HTML style tag attributes every time. Just write one CSS rule of a tag and apply it to all the occurrences of that tag. So less code means page size is small thus making it load/open faster.
Quick Update and Maintenance ? To make a global change, simply change the style at one place, and all elements in all the web pages will be updated automatically wherever the reference code is linked and is used.
Enhances HTML Look and Feel ? CSS will change the look and feel of site in absolutely freaking way , allowing you to present your content in much attractive ways.
Responsive World ? Style sheets allow content to be optimized for more than one type of device. By using the same HTML document, different versions of a website can be presented for handheld devices such as PDAs , Mobile/Tablet or for printing.
Who Creates and Maintains CSS?
CSS was invited by Håkon Wium Lie on October 10, 1994 and maintained through a group of people within the W3C called the CSS Working Group. The CSS Working Group creates documents called specifications. When a specification has been discussed and officially ratified by W3C members, it becomes a recommendation.
