7 Compelling Reasons to Start Using CSS for your Website - More design effects...
(Page 4 of 4 )
5. More design effects
CSS offers you more design effects than normal HTML. With HTML you can change the color, font and style of your content. With CSS you can change the background color (e.g. set it to yellow to create a highlighter effect), create borders, change letter spacing, word spacing ....
6. Faster loading time
Reduced table use and reduced image use will lead us to faster loading time. Need I say more?
7. Search engine friendly
Now that all your design code is in your CSS file, what is left in your web pages? You got it ... content. That's not all, with CSS, you can even put your navigation text and other 'non-content' content at the bottom of your HTML file but make it 'appear' at the top using CSS. This way, search engines will find the more important content first.
Enough said. I think now you can understand why I'm so excited about switching to a CSS based site design.
