What are the advantages of external CSS
The Advantages of Using External CSS When you use "external" CSS (cascading style sheets) to control the basic cosmetics of your web site, you need only to edit those cosmetic properties in one file to update ALL of your web site's pages. [ This can be done from your server *if* your hosting service allows you to edit your site from a control panel, or you can edit the style sheet using a text editor on your system and upload it to your server. Cosmetic properties are defined as characteristics that do not interfere with your visitors' navigational experience. Not all CSS properties are
safely compatible with all browsers, so you must be careful what properties you use. You do not want to negatively effect your visitors' experience at your site. Obviously, if your visitor is using an older version of Netscape to surf your site, and you have colored scrolls bars which do not display in Netscape, that would be considered a safe, cosmetic property. This is because the visitor using this old browser does not know the scrollbars are displayed in a different color if they were viewing your site with MIE, for example. This does not effect their navigation through your site. If it did, we would not consider it a safe, cosmetic CSS property. In essence, based on what I described above, using external CSS makes maintenance to your site's cosmetic appearance quite easy to maintain site-wide. Recently, we updated the appearance of our entire site, BasicTemplates.com, by changing the font-family and size. If you have been to our site before and have viewed it now, you will find this a refreshing new appearance. Feedback poured in about how much our visitors enjoyed the "new look". A few folks even remarked about how time consuming the change must have been since our site is so large. ]

creating the style for the h1 heading.
Weegy: determine which properties you want to apply to the font. Possible font properties you can style are: * Font-family (for example, Tahoma, Arial, [ or Helvetica) * Font-style (which includes italic and oblique) * Font-variant (which includes normal and small caps) * Font-weight (either normal or bold) * Font-size (size can be given in pixels, ems, percentages or using keywords such as small, medium and large) 2 A possible CSS rule for an h1 heading might be: h1 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: large; }Decide if you want to have a border for your heading. The possible border style properties are: * None * Dotted * Dashed * Solid * Double * Groove * Ridge 4 Possible border-width values include keywords such as thin, medium and thick or a value given in pixels, ems or percentages. A border-color value should also be specified. Choose any color you want. 5 Here's the h1 rule with some border styles added: h1 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: large; border-size: thin; border-style: dotted border-color: red; width: 400px; } 6 Padding can be added using a value in pixels, ems or percentages. Like borders, padding can be added individually to any side of a heading. 7 Here's a possible rule adding padding to the h1 style example: h1 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: large; border: thin dotted #FF0000; padding-top: 10px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 10px; } Use Background Color or Background Image Rules 8 Any element can have a background-color. To apply a background color to the h1 example heading, use a rule like this: h1 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: large; border: thin dotted #FF0000; padding-top: 10px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; padding-left: 10px; background-color: #CCFFFF; } 9 Instead of, or in addition to, a background color, an image can be used as a background for a heading. ...
