What is CSS?

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a simple mechanism for adding style (e.g. fonts, colors, spacing) to Web documents. Learn more about CSS and _how to use it_ for your website.

The CSS Working Group is responsible for maintaining the CSS standards and developing the future of CSS. You can join the conversation and _contribute to the future of style_ .


Good test suites drive interoperability. They're a key part of making sure Web standards are implemented correctly and consistently. The W3C hosts the official CSS Conformance Test Suites here. Many of these test suites are still works in progress. You can help us drive CSS interoperability on the Web by reporting errors and contributing new or improved tests.


If you want to talk CSS, the css-discuss mailing list, CSS Creator Web forums, and c.i.w.a.s. Usenet newsgroup are all devoted to the practical use of Cascading Style Sheets. To keep up with the CSS Working Group's latest announcements, discussion topics, and resolutions you can follow our weblog, which is aggregated with several other CSS-focused streams on The Future of Style. Finally, detailed technical discussion about the CSS specifications takes place on the publicly-archived www-style mailing list.
