CSS Info These documents uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the visual appearance of the page without polluting the HTML code. If the word "RED" is not colored red, your browser is not rendering CSS. In this case, you should turn on CSS, which is supported by the vast majority of browsers in use. CSS disabled seems to be the default for Netscape: you can turn CSS on via Edit -- Preferences -- Advanced -- Enable Style Sheets. The CSS and the HTML on these pages were written by hand using the syntax-highlighting editor NEdit and the syntax checker weblint.

Like many web pages, this one is a work-in-progress, so please visit again. Perhaps there will be a new chapter, or an existing chapter will have been improved.
