This article is about controling a web site with CSS. It talks about the old times when HTML was plain and boring content that, in the event it was altered or enhanced, had to be done on the fly and “inline”. As many of us already know this is very time comsuming and tedious. The article goes on to talk about these annoyances and how if a change is made to a particular paragraph lets say then that paragraph and that paragraph only will recieve the formating. You would have to pay attention to detail and ensure that all the paragraphs were formated the same and that they included all the say tags and formats in order for your site to be consistant and look professional. The article stresses the ease of using CSS and how if you set a specific tag to have a unique formatting, then everywhere in on the page that you used that tag that formatting will be applied. The author also makes a note of giving the reader a brief and simplistic tutorial to better drive home the point of the easiness of CSS and the effectiveness. Lastly the author addresses the down side to using CSS and that is the compatability with multiple browsers not all browsers see the CSS and interpret it the same. This is obviously problematic for a developer.
