Cascading Style Sheets

This lecture provides an in-depth introduction to the topic of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). CSS is how we tell the browser how the page should look like. That is, CSS describes the layout (look) of a page. There is a long design literature on proper typesetting and poster layout techniques. Since this class is not about design we will not cover these topics in depth. However, it is very important that you understand how style sheets work and what they let you do. Your JavaScript will often manipulate style sheet attributes and CSS selectors are heavily used by many JavaScript libraries, such as jQuery.

You must watch the following lecture:
