A web design term. Short for 'Cascading Style Sheet'.

CSS was developed to allow the designer to define the way a web page is formatted, for example there are CSS commands for the colour and size of text, the positions of images and the width of text blocks.

CSS is deemed superior to the older method of using invisible tables and spacer images to lay out a page.

CSS can be stored in a separate file to the web page or the commands may be part of the web page file itself.
