Example text

For example, on a mobile phone where the connection speed is limited, a Web browser may ignore style sheets to speed up the Web. For these reasons, it is important that HTML pages can be displayed even if the style sheet is not taken into account. CSS was designed with this in mind, and all content remains visible even if the style sheet is ignored. This is because of the fundamental principles of style sheets: the separation of content and presentation. By only describing the presentation of documents, all the content of the documents are available even if the style sheets are ignored.

The sample document with bold slanted list items. The last properties, font-variant and line-height, haven't been widely supported in browsers up to now; therefore, they are not as commonly used yet. Common Tasks: Margins Setting space around elements is a basic tool in typography. The headline above this paragraph has space above it and (slightly less) space below it. This paragraph, as printed in this book, has space on the left and (slightly less) on the right. CSS can be used to express how much space should exist around different kinds of elements.

Sometimes, however, you may want to insert white space and have the browser display your text exactly as you formatted it. The PRE (preformatted) element allows you do this. Simply enclose within

 tags the information whose formatting you want to preserve.  The PRE element is often used for simple tables where columns need to align vertically:  Bach's home page  

Bach's
home page

Johann Sebastian Bach was a prolific composer. Among his works are:

 COMPOSITION YEAR CATALOG# Goldberg Variation 1741 BWV988 Brandenburg Concertos 1713 BWV1046-1051 Christmas Oratorio BWV248 1734 
Notice that the content of the PRE element cannot be aligned with the other elements because the extra white space would appear on the canvas.
