CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. CSS is a style-sheet language used to style documents written in a markup language, such as HTML and XHTML. Web developers both love and hate CSS - It is unarguably a wonderful and easy language to present XML documents (Like web-pages), but the most common grief for the developers using CSS is the compatibility problems between the browsers. However, skilled designers can do amazing things with CSS, and here is a little showdown of ten good websites to look for inspiration if you run out of design ideas.



A well known site, includes some stunning examples what can be done with CSS. The idea of CSS Zen garden is to give designers same html site, and the designers job is to create CSS for it.

Some people unknowingly go for cheap web hosting. They are not aware that such low cost website hosting services may not be providing some features that may turn out to be important for you. Lets say online backup of your is important for you but it turns out most low cost services don’t provide neither windows backup software or linux backup software on their servers. The same thing goes for voip deals. Some of the low cost deals may not offer free internet phone or they may have lower voice quality. It is also a possibility that internet telephones provided with low cost services are of low quality. Take decision considering value for money in packages and deals.
