    why we called cascading stylesheets?instead of calling stylesheets is there any meaning to add cascade to stylesheets?

    The style sheet with the highest priority gets used to display the content. Declarations that are not set in the highest priority source, will get passed on by a source of lower priority such as the user agent style. This process is called cascading.
