WebDesign: Cascades and CSS (W6-P1)

What is a cascade, anyway?

Casacade: "a small waterfall, typically one of several that fall in stages down a steep rocky slope" (Google).

Or perhaps you've seen one of the water cascades in some business office with sheets of water coming down.

What is CSS and what purpose of CSS?

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS): "a style sheet language used to describe the presentational semantics of a document written in the markup language HTML" (from the above instructional video).

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS): "a style sheet language used for describing the presentation of a document written in a markup language" (Wikipedia).

What is the difference between these two definitions? Which is better?

If you are interested and like the above video, I'd recommend DevTips' CSS Basics playlist.

In the above video clip, they turned of CSS to illustrate what it does.  If you are interested and are using newer version of Microsoft Explorer in Windows 10, see these instructions for how to turn-off CSS on whatever website you visit. Maybe start with Google home page or Apple's site . Instructions for other browsers can usually be found online, if you are interested.
