    At a recent interview I was asked the question “Is CSS giving error?” by the interviewer.

    Is there an interpreter working behind CSS which blocks execution of the program? Or can we say that CSS does not give any error? I am still confused as to what is the answer to this question because the interviewer also did not say anything.


    No, CSS cannot “give error”…it’s not a programming language.

    It either works or it doesn’t. In fact, it’s a very forgiving language, if it comes across a term it does not understand it just ignores it and continues running.

    Unfortunately, you seem to have missed the opportunity to ask the interviewer what he meant by the question. It’s possible he didn’t know either.


    Even when parsing through the rendering engine itself, no CSS should give any error. Or you’ve been programming it badly. It should be something undefined at most.
