Managing and Organizing Style Sheets


It is usual and customary for web authors to combine multiple style sheets that work together to style a web page. We have several reasons for doing so. One style sheet might be for typography, another for layout, and yet another for color. There may be one style sheet specifically designed to handle print output, and one or more possibly to deal with the explosion of mobile devices hitting the Web lately. Some of these may be architected to work so that there are various forms of failover for user agents that support this or that part of the CSS specifications. Applying multiple style sheets to a web site is quite common, and in fact encouraged, and in this chapter we will discuss various methodologies and techniques for putting your style sheets together.
