Cascading Style Sheets or CSS is how you add visual appeal to web pages. You create CSS rules to control fonts, margins, backgrounds, layout and all other visual aspects of web page.

The structure and content of web pages is created using HTML code. CSS is used to control what the page and contents look like. When it comes to National 4, National 5 and the new Higher Computing science courses there is a greater emphasis and some requirement for pupils to produce and edit simple html code. Adding CSS to that code will bring the pages to life.
