CSS Tutorial

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets, used to define how a document written in markup language (HTML) should be presented on the web. For example:

HTML with CSS Code
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
   <style>
      body{margin: 0;}
      .myContainer {display: grid;
         grid-template-areas: 'h h h h' 'n n n n' 'm c c c' 'f f f f';}
      #myHeader {grid-area: h; background-color: mediumseagreen; color: white;
         padding: 18px 0; text-align: center; font-size: large;}
      #myNavBar{grid-area: n; background-color: purple; color: whitesmoke;}
      #myMenu {grid-area: m; margin-top: -15px;}
      #myContent {grid-area: c; padding: 4px 12px;}
      #myFooter {grid-area: f; background-color: mediumseagreen; color: white;
         padding: 18px 0; text-align: center; margin-top: -15px;}

      #myHeader{display: inline;}
      .company{float: left; padding-left: 14px;}
      .search{float: right; padding-right: 14px;}
      .search input{width: 80px; border-radius: 10px; padding: 4px 6px; margin-right: 8px;
         background-color: mediumaquamarine; border: 2px solid white;}

      #myNavBar ul{list-style-type: none; background-color: purple; overflow: hidden;
         margin: 0; padding: 0;}
      #myNavBar li{float: left;}
      #myNavBar li a{display: block; color: white; text-decoration: none; padding: 12px;}
      #myNavBar li a:hover{background-color: aliceblue; color: purple;}
      #myNavBar .right{float: right;}

      #myMenu ul{list-style-type: none; background-color: #ccc;
         padding: 0; text-align: center;}
      #myMenu li a{display: block; text-decoration: none; padding: 12px; color: brown;}
      #myMenu li a:hover{background-color: aliceblue; color: purple;}
   </style>
</head>
<body>

   <div class="myContainer">
      <div id="myHeader">
         <div class="company">CODESCRACKER</div>
         <div class="search">
            <input type="text">Search
         </div>
      </div>
      <div id="myNavBar">
         <ul>
            <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Services</a></li>
            <li class="right"><a href="#">Prices</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
         </ul>
      </div>
      <div id="myMenu">
         <ul>
            <li><a href="#">Link One</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Link Two</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Link Three</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Link Four</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Link Five</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Link Six</a></li>
         </ul>
      </div>
      <div id="myContent">
         <h2>Some Heading</h2>
         <p>Some myContent</p>
         <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Officia architecto quibusdam
            deserunt aspernatur quaerat eum, vero ullam rerum dicta illum?</p>
      </div>
      <div id="myFooter">Footer</div>
   </div>
   
</body>
</html>
Output
CODESCRACKER

Some Heading

Some content

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Officia architecto quibusdam deserunt aspernatur quaerat eum, vero ullam rerum dicta illum?

Footer

Now if I remove all the CSS codes from above example, then the output should be:

CODESCRACKER
Search

Some Heading

Some content

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Officia architecto quibusdam deserunt aspernatur quaerat eum, vero ullam rerum dicta illum?

Footer

See how boring the presentation of the same document, but without CSS, looks like.
