CSS gives Web designers control over the appearance of their web sites by separating the visual presentation from the content. It lets them easily make minor changes to a site or perform a complete overhaul of the design.

The training also covers how to build effective navigation, how to lay out pages, and how to work with typography, colors, backgrounds, and white space.
