Applying CSS Styles Across Your Entire Site

Applying CSS Styles Across Your Entire Site

Using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), you can easily create styles that apply to the entire site. This technique has many advantages over repeating the same style text over and over in each of your pages. Using site-wide styles, you can simply change the master CSS file and it will affect all the pages on your site. First, create a new text file called “style.css” (or whatever you choose) and insert your CSS definition:

   a { text-decoration: none; }

This particular code removes the default underlines on links. Of course, your style sheet can include as many definitions as you would like. After you’ve saved the file, insert this code into the of all the HTML documents you’d like to be affected by the style sheet:

   

Internet Explorer 4 will then apply all the styles listed in “style.css” to the current document when parsing the HTML documents. After the CSS file is downloaded once, it should be cached, so all subsequent pages don’t need another trip to the server to get the CSS info. This technique saves bandwidth and gives you more control over how your pages are displayed.
