This blog has taken a ridiculously nerdy turn of late, and the nerdiness continues right here.
It’s a simple, though nerdy question:
It gets nerdier
Quoting from the W3 site:
This short tutorial is meant for people who want to start using CSS and have never written a CSS style sheet before.
In it’s un-acronymed form:
This short tutorial is meant for people who want to start using cascading stylesheets and have never written a cascading stylesheets style sheet before.
This would indicate that a cascading stylesheets style sheet is a type of style sheet. But a novel is a kind of book, though it isn’t written in ‘Novel’, so it doesn’t enable us to deduce that the name of the language of style sheets is, somewhat clumsily, Cascading stylesheets.
I’m not seriously suggesting that CSS does of the utmost importance need a proper name, but I think the web design community could easily adopt a three word name with the same acronym.
I say easily, but I’ve failed to think of one. I think it shoudl have selectors in it though.
