The CSS Benefits and Limitations

Many website designing firms used HTML for websites designs. But, when design were required to to be changed, it became very difficult to make the changes in the website pages. Cascading Style Sheets, popularly called CSS, solved this difficult task of making changes to all website pages.

Website designing firms began to use Cascading Style Sheets to make formatting HTML document work easy. Before Cascading Style Sheets, HTML tags were applied to characterize fonts, tables, headers, paragraphs,etc. The browser then read all these tags and presented a formatted HTML page to its user. Tags for different structures of formatting were embedded within the HTML and website content. As more and more HTML tags were introduced it became difficult for the website company to manage content and website presentation. The introduction of cascading style sheets made possible to separate content from the website style. One of the benefit of Cascading Style Sheets was that it allowed the designers to manage more than one page at one time for formatting and content.

Website design using Cascading Style Sheets has become popular now and web designing companies have also adapted the versions that are latest. After exploring with CSS1 and CSS2 versions, CSS3 is now developed and modularized. There are many ways in which the CSS is sourced for HTML page in the browser.

Though using CSS for website design has simplified things for developers and website companies, it has few limitations that must be considered while using it.

  • The CSS browser support is not standardized and old versions of few browser cannot decipher the style tags. Thus the desired website layout is not truly achieved.

  • Designers need to compromise on the visual effect of a website, because it is not possible to have different backgrounds for each element of graphic.

  • CSS supports only a perfect rectangle shape. This is a limitation on aesthetics use for different shapes.

  • CSS do not give you full control on the layout with vertical placement as it does for the horizontal placing of elements on a website.

The limitations are being worked on in present version CSS3 and definitely with the benefits and the ease that CSS has to offer, there are no chances that website designing companies stop usage of CSS.
