CSS Rules and Browsers



This lesson will explore the actual syntax of Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) rules, how to write them from scratch, and the parts of a CSS rule. The specific concept of "cascading" CSS sheets (why we call it "cascading") will be explored, as well as how the browser will handle multiple CSS style sheets. A web page at www.w3schools.com will be used which is changed as needed, so this lesson plan must be adapted as that web site is changed due to adoptions of new CSS models, changes in browser statistics, etc. THIS LESSON CANNOT BE LAMINATED IN PLASTIC AND USED AS IS FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS...
