An Ultimate Guide To CSS || CSS Cheatsheet

What is CSS?

CSS, i.e. Cascading Style Sheets is a stylesheet language used to describe the presentation of a document written in a markup language such as HTML, XML, etc. CSS enhances the look and feel of the webpage by describing how elements should be rendered on screen or in other media.


There are 3 types of CSS:

  1. External CSS
  2. Internal CSS
  3. Inline CSS

1. External CSS: For using an external style sheet, your .html files need to include a header section that links to an external style sheet. Since the CSS code is in a separate document, your HTML files will have a cleaner structure and are smaller in size.

You can use the same .css file for multiple pages.

For example:

<link rel=”stylesheet”  type=”text/css”  href=mysitestyle.css”>

2. Internal CSS: These CSS instructions are written directly into the header of a specific .html page. This CSS style is an effective method of styling a single page.

For example:

Body  {  background-color:thistle;  }
P  {  font-size:20px;  color:mediumblue;  }

3. Inline CSS: Lastly, inline styles are CSS blocks that are written directly into a single instance of HTML code.

For example:

<h1  style=”font-size:55px;color:orange;”>Check out this headline!</h1>

The most efficient way of implementing CSS on a website is to use external style sheets, whereas internal style sheets and inline styles are suitable for case-by-case changes.

What is CSS Syntax?

CSS syntax is relatively simple. Various attributes, such as font size and background color, are assigned values within the brackets following the name of the element to style, called the CSS selector.

What are CSS Selectors?

A CSS property value pattern is a pattern of elements, such as HTML elements, that instruct the browser which elements to select when applying the CSS property values.

What is CSS Clearfix: 

It is used to clear floats to select or keep control of your margins and padding.

.clearfix::after {
