Standards are beneficial for your Web site in terms of cost savings, ease of management and profitability, and so you have decided to switch - and employ standards within your Web site.
Style sheets describe how documents are presented on screens, in print, or perhaps how they are pronounced. W3C has actively promoted the use of style sheets on the Web since the Consortium was founded in 1994. The Style Activity has produced several W3C Recommendations (CSS1, CSS2, XPath, XSLT). CSS especially is widely implemented in browsers.
