Next step

The best advice we can offer to anyone wishing to learn CSS is to read the specification. If you have a basic understanding of HTML and know a little bit about DTP terminology you shouldn't have any problem understanding the specification.

Cascading Style Sheets, level 1
W3C Recommendation 17 December 1996
http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/TR/REC-CSS1 [ext link]

Unfortunately the current mainstream browsers and authoring tools do not support all of the features listed in the specification. This makes it difficult and frustrating for people to learn and experiment with CSS. To help in this area we've reproduced all of the typographically important sections of the CSS specification, with examples of their use and details of the level of support you can expect from Microsoft® Internet Explorer 3. This section will be extended to list support for these features within Internet Explorer 4.
