casading stylesheets

    In interview point of view. so many persons raised a question?

    instead of calling stylesheets why we called cascading style sheets? why we used word cascading in front of style sheets

    It’s called cascading style sheets because of the "cascade." It just means you can define many css properties for an element with many different selectors, and it will "cascade" together. It has a system of overwriting so any one element won’t be told contradicting orders.
