Use Stylesheets To Make Your Development Process Smoother
When it comes to style there are many options. Every designer has their own personal style, though most follow some similar guidelines. When you are designing for print, the basic style should be used throughout your paper. The style should make your text easy to read, clear, and attractive. When you are designing for the web, you will want to add a little bit of style to your website. However, your style should still be consistent with the rest of your paper.
A common style is to simply use a single style throughout your entire document. This is called a single-style style. The body text is usually in a style that follows the single-style format, which means the style name will be the first thing in capital letters. Inside the single-style form, the background, style, and color of your choice will be specified. Styles will help your documents get a polished appearance and consistent feel throughout.
You can also apply a style to multiple sections of your page using an edit tab. You would select all the sections you want to change the formatting for and then click the “edit tab” link next to each section. In the edit tab, you will see several boxes, one for each style you want to apply. Simply type the desired style into the box, hit enter, and then choose the cell or rows where you want the formatting to appear.
If you have a lot of extra space, you might consider using multiple styles. For instance, if you wanted to create a header for every page of your site, but had very limited formatting options, you could create a header for each page using one style. Then when you created the rest of the pages, you could simply copy and paste the same formatting from the header onto the rest of the pages. You might also want to use one formatting style on a few high-traffic pages, such as About Us or Contact Us, and use the other styles on the least traffic-sensitive pages. This allows your less-used pages a unique look without using up all the available space.
The most flexible option is probably using CSS for changing the style of a document without having to write code. Just add some CSS rules and then choose which style you want to apply. For example, if you wanted to change the style of the heading only, rather than the entire document, you would just enter a CSS formula for the heading, change the style to main, and then enter the formula for the rest of the document. If you wanted to change the formatting on every page, you would just add an additional CSS rule. You could even use multiple styling sheets within one document.
So whether you are formatting something as part of a proposal, or for use in the real world as part of a web development process, always be sure to use CSS for a smoother, easier experience. By using CSS, you can use different styles throughout your site quickly and easily. When used this way, your development process will go smoothly.
