Working withCascading Style Sheets

tutorial objectives
Tutorial Objectives
  • Learn about the history and theory of cascading style sheets
  • Create inline styles, embedded styles, and style sheets
  • Understand style precedence and style inheritance
  • Work with style selectors
history and support of css
History and Support of CSS
  • A style sheet defines the appearance of a document.
  • One goal of style sheets is to separate the development of a document’s style from the development of its content.
  • Style sheets must use a common language - Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
  • CSS Versions: CSS1 (1996), CSS2 (1998), CSS3 (being developed)
applying a style sheet
Applying a Style Sheet
  • Inline styles: A style is applied to a specific element through the use of the style attribute in the element’s tag. The style affects that particular tag but does not affect other tags in the document.
  • Embedded styles: A style sheet is placed in a document’s head, setting the style definitions for the entire HTML file.
  • External styles: A style sheet is saved in a separate external file and is applied to a group of pages in a Web site.
using inline styles
Using Inline Styles

<element style=“style declarations”>

  • element is the name of the tag (h1, h2, etc)
  • A style declaration consists of attributes, and attributes are followed by a colon and then the value of the attribute.
  • Multiple attributes are allowed as long as each attribute is separated by a semicolon.

attribute1:value1; attribute2:value2; . . .

<h1 style=“text-align: right; color: gold; font-family: sans-serif”>

using embedded styles
Using Embedded Styles

Embed style definitions in the head section of the HTML file using the form:<style type=“style sheet language”>style declarations </style>

  • For CSS, style sheet language is “text/css”.
  • Each style declaration has the syntax:

selector {style1: value1; style2: value2; . . . }

  • selector identifies an element or elements within the document, and the style: value pairs indicate the styles applied to all the occurrences of that element(s)
using embedded styles continued
Using Embedded Styles(continued)
  • <style type=“text/css”>

h1 {text-align: right; color: gold; font-family: sans-serif} </style>

    • h1 is the selector and the text enclosed in the braces is the declaration
  • Apply the same declaration to a group of selectors by including all of the selector names separated by commas.

h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6 {text-align: right; color: gold; font-family: sans-serif} </style>

using an external style sheet
Using an External Style Sheet
  • Create styles that apply to an entire Web site , store the style declarations in a file using the extension “.css”
  • Within a style sheet, you don’t need <style> tags, just the style declarations.

body {color: brown}

h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {font-family: sans-serif; color: orange}

address {color: orange; font-style: normal;

font-variant: small-caps; text-align: center}

linking to an external style sheet with the link tag
Linking to an External Style Sheet with the <link> Tag

Use the following element in the head element of the document:

<link href=“url” rel=“stylesheet” type=“mime-type”>

  • To link to a style sheet, the value of the rel attribute should be “stylesheet” and the value of the type attribute should be “text/css”.

<link href="scraps.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css“ />

understanding cascading order
Understanding Cascading Order

In cases where the styles conflict, precedence is determined in the following order:

  • an inline style overrides any embedded style or external style sheet
  • an embedded style overrides an external style sheet
  • an external style sheet overrides the internal style rules set by the Web browser
  • any style attributes left undefined by an inline style, an embedded style, or an external style sheet are left to the Web browser
style inheritance
Style Inheritance
  • Style inheritance causes style declarations to cascade down through a document.

The HTML element relationship

parent and descendant elements
Parent and Descendant Elements
  • An element that lies within another element is called a descendant or descendant element.
  • An element that contains another element is called the parent or parent element.
  • An example of a parent is the <body> tag, which contains all of the other tags used to format the content of a Web page.
  • Using the principle of inheritance, styles defined for each parent tag are transferred to its descendants.
contextual selectors

apply a blue color to h2 headings

and to boldfaced list items

Contextual Selectors

Use the tree structure concept to control how styles are applied to a Web page.

parentdescendant {styles}

  • li b {color: blue}apply a blue color to boldfaced lists
  • li b, h2 {color: blue}

Use style sheets

instead of tables

for layout

using ids
Using IDs
  • To identify the paragraph as “head”, use:

<p id="head"><img src="scraps.jpg" alt="Online Scrapbooks” width="314" height="75" /></p>

  • To reference the paragraph in the style sheet, use an id selector:#id {styles}
  • #head {text-align: right; border-bottom: 1px solid orange}
using classes
Using Classes
  • Mark a group of elements with a common identifier:<elementclass=“class”>. . . </class>
  • Apply styles to a class of elements using:.class {styles}
  • Apply styles to a class of elements of a particular type using:element.class {styles}

Working with the div element
  • The span element is a general inline element, the div element is a general block-level element. The syntax is:<div>content</div>
  • <div id="main"><h1>Getting Started</h1>
  • #main {width: 70%; float: left; border-left: 1px solid orange; padding-left: 10px}The main page content is now positioned at the right edge of the links list.

<div id="box">

<h3>Basic Materials</h3>

<ul><li>Acid-free paper, card stock, and stickers</li>

setting the display style
Setting the Display Style
  • To define the display style of an element, use:display: typetype is block, inline, . . .
  • #links a {display: block;font-family: sans-serif;color: white; font-size: 9pt}

Each link is displayed in its own block

working with the box model setting the padding size
Working with the Box Model:Setting the Padding Size
  • padding:top right bottom leftspecifies the value between the element’s content and the box’s border
  • #links {width: 150px; float: left; background-color: rgb(212,142,0); margin-right: 10px; padding: 10px; border: 2px solid black}
  • #box ul {list-style-type: circle; margin-left: 25px; padding-left: 0px}
working with the box model formatting the border
Working with the Box Model:Formatting the Border
  • To set the width of an element’s border, use:border-width: top right bottom leftTo define the border widths for individual sides, use border-top-width, border-right-width, . .
  • To set a border color, use:border-color: top right bottom leftTo define the border colors for individual sides, use border-top-color, border-right-color, . .
  • To set border style, use:border-style: top right bottom leftstyle values are solid, dashed, dotted, double, outset, inset, groove, ridge, none
working with the box model formatting the border26
Working with the Box Model:Formatting the Border
  • To define the border styles for individual sides, use border-top-style, border-right-style, . .
  • To format an entire border, use:border: width style color
  • #box {width: 200px; float: right;background-color: ivory; margin: 5 0 5 5;border: 5 outset orange}
  • #links {width: 150px; float: left; background-color: rgb(212, 142, 0); margin-right: 10px; padding: 10px; border: 2px solid black}
working with the box model formatting the border27
Working with the Box Model:Formatting the Border

Add lines separating the different sections of the document:

  • address {. . .; clear: both;border-top: 1px solid orange}
  • #head {. . .; border-bottom: 1px solid orange}
  • #main {. . .; border-left: 1px solid orange; padding-left: 10px}
using pseudo classes
Using Pseudo-Classes
  • To create a style for pseudo-class, use:selector:pseudo-class {styles}
    • usefule pseudo-classes include the link, visited, hover, and active pseudo-classes
  • #links a:link {text-decoration: none}#links a:visited {text-decoration: none}#links a:hover {color: black; text- decoration: underline}#links a:active {text-decoration: none}
using pseudo elements
Using Pseudo-Elements
  • To create a style for pseudo-celement, use:selector:pseudo-element {styles}
    • usefule pseudo-elements include the first-line and first-letter pseudo-elements
  • <style type="text/css">#firstp:first-line {font-variant: small-caps}#firstp:first-letter {float: left; font-size: 400%; line-height:0.8} </style>
  • <p id="firstp">Scrapbooking is . . .
positioning objects with css the position style
Positioning Objects with CSSThe Position Style

To place an object at a specific position, use:position: type; top: value; right: value;bottom: value; left: value

  • type is absolute, relative, static (default), fixed, inherit
  • With static, it is the same as not using any CSS positioning at all. All values are ignored by the browser
  • The top, right, bottom, left styles indicate the coordinates of the top, right, bottom, and left edges of the element

#note1 {position: absolute; left: 600px; top: 150px}

#note3 {position: absolute; left: 570px; top: 550px}

#note2 {position: absolute; left: 170px; top: 400px}

working with overflow
Working with Overflow
  • To change how the browser handles content that overflows the size of an element, use:overflow: type
    • type is visible (default), scroll, hidden (to hide content overflow), auto (to display scrollbars only when needed)
  • .notes {. . . ; width: 130px; height: 100px;overflow: auto}
working with clipping stacking
Working with Clipping, Stacking
  • The clip style defines a rectangular region through which the element’s content can be viewed. The syntax is:clip: rect (top, right, bottom, left}
  • To determine how positioned objects should be stacked, use:z-index: value
    • value is a positive or negative integer or auto.
    • Objects with higher values are stacked on top of elements with lower values
working with media types
Working with Media Types
  • Be default, a style sheet is applied to all devices. To create a style sheet for specific media, add the following attribute:media=“type”
  • <style type=“text/css”> h1 {font-family: sans-serif} </style><style type=“text/css” media=“screen”> h1 {color: red} </style><style type=“text/css” media=“print”> h1 {color: black} </style>
hiding elements
Hiding Elements

To hide the address, #links, and #head elements on the “Samples” page for printed output, add the styles to “print.css”.

  • h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {font-family: sans-serif}address, #head, #links {display: none}

In the “samples” file, add an link to the print.css:

  • <link href="print.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print, projection" />
  • <link href="scraps.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen, tv, tty" />

Print the callout notes only in a bulleted list

<style type="text/css"media="print, projection"> .notes {font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; display: list-item; margin: 20px}</style>

<style type="text/css"media="screen, tv, tty">

. . .


using print styles
Using Print Styles
  • CSS2 defines printed pages by extending the box model to incorporate the entire page in a page box. The general rule is:@page {styles}
  • <style type=“text/css” media=“print”> @page {margin: 5in} body {font-size: 12pt; font-family: serif}</style>

Pages do not support the em or ex units

using print styles continued
Using Print Styles (continued)
  • To define multiple page styles, use:@page:pseudo-class {styles}
    • pseudo-class is first (for the first page of the printout), left and right (for pages that appear on the left/right in double-sided printouts).
  • @page:left {margin: 3cm 5cm 3cm 2cm}@page:right {margin: 3cm 2cm 3cm 5cm}
using print styles continued39
Using Print Styles (continued)
  • Create a named label for a page style:@page name {styles}
  • Then apply the named style to particular elements using:selector {page: name}
  • @page large_margins {margin: 10cm}table {page: large_margins}
    • A page named “large margins” should be used for every instance of a table in a document
  • It can only apply to block-level elements
using print styles continued40
Using Print Styles (continued)
  • To set the page size and orientation, use:size: width height orientation orsize: auto (or inherit)
    • width and height are the width and height of the page, and orientation is portrait or landscape
  • @page {size: 8.5in 11in landscape; margin: 1in}
using print styles continued41
Using Print Styles (continued)

To format the page break, use:page-break-before: typepage-break-after: type

  • type is always (to always place a page break), avoid, left (to force a page break where the succeeding page will be a left page), right, auto, inherit
  • @page table_page {8.5in 11in landscape}table {page: table_page; page-break-before: always; page-break-inside: avoid; page-break-after: always}
  • #main p img {page-break-before: always}
