7 Reasons Why Using CSS is a Must
By Michael Turner
CSS is a new option for website designers that have been
using HTML and tables for most of their web designing
careers. Of course, it is a huge change and requires learning
a new language and skill, however most people are saying
CSS is worth it and it will give you more control, options,
and is easier to edit. Consider the following 7 reasons
why using CSS is a must and see if it convinces you to
change your method of web design.
Reason #1 Present Data Logically
When you use CSS in the layout of your website you can
present your data in a logical way and CSS can then manage
how the information appears. This is significantly easier
than other methods and is one reason why CSS is a must.
Reason #2 More Options
With CSS you have more options for changing the location
of information on your screen. This is important for a
variety of reasons, especially if you anticipate the need
to change columns or links at some time.
Reason #3 Complements HTML
Another reason CSS is a must is because it complements
HTML. HTML and CSS alone both have weaknesses, but when
used together your website design will be significantly
Reason #4 Editing
You can edit your website design if you need to for whatever
reason without that much hassle if you are using CSS.
All you do is go in and edit the definition. This is a
lot easer than searching and replacing of years past.
Reason #5 Faster
When you use CSS your pages not only load faster but they
also can be scrolled quicker than ever before. This is
a huge deal to most web surfers as well as webmasters
because speed is a huge implication in whether someone
stays on your page or moves on. CSS increases speed, and
as a result is a tool you must learn how to use.
Reason #6 Print
When you use CSS you can also include a printer friendly
version of the website that makes it easier to print and
can eliminate color, images, and other things that do
not print easily.
Reason #7 Control
If you have been working with tables for layouts you are
probably tired of the guessing that goes on. However,
with CSS you have more control and can issues commands
and know exactly where the result will appear, rather
than guessing. This is in itself makes CSS a must have.
Now that you have some information on CSS, you are probably
interested in knowing more details about how it works
and above all how you can learn to use CSS. Fortunately,
there is tons of information available online that will
provide you with the answers to your many questions on
CSS and how it can help you.
