CSS (short for Cascading Style Sheets, Creating Stupid Stuff, or Central Security Service) is a programming language that users can use to make pages awful. Users familiar with CSS can do a lot of things (including making things look like other things).
Heading[edit | edit source]
This is a heading. It is used to separate sections of a page.
Paragraph that looks like a heading
This paragraph looks like a heading. But how? Well, you just type this code:
<p style="border-bottom: 1px solid #AAAAAA; font-family: serif; font-size: 22px">Paragraph that looks like a heading</p>
border-bottom style creates a border below the paragraph and sets it to a color similar to the heading's border. The
font-family style sets the paragraph's font to the default serif font (which looks like the font used by the heading).
font-size sets the font size to 22 pixels (a similar size to the heading).
Subheading[edit | edit source]
Subheadings are used to separate headings of a page.
Paragraph that looks like a subheading
The following code makes paragraphs look like subheadings:
<p style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 17px">Paragraph that looks like a subheading</p> The
font-weight property sets the font weight to bold (the font weight of the subheadings). The
font-size style should be changed depending on the size of the subheading (17 pixels is the size of the Level 3 subheading).
