CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), were brought about by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and not by evil programmers with too much time on their hands as originally believed, to develop a standard which could be interpreted by different browsers. This became a necessity as Microsoft and Netscape battled for world domination and kept adding html attributes which were only understood by their browser. Great for them, bad for us.

Now, through the implementation of CSS, we can design ONE website for all browsers instead of multiple websites, one for each browser.

What started out as a way of standardizing the way code was displayed through basic things, like font and color tags, has quickly grown into something much more powerful, which makes sense because all of the not so evil programmers could now spend more time working on the one standard which could be understood by all browsers.
