The Difference Between HTML And CSS

HTML and CSS are complementary to the creation and design of a web document. HTML is the short form for “Hypertext Markup Language”, which is one of the old standards for designing websites. While CSS is the short form of “Cascading style sheets”, which is relatively new language for designing websites and is not that easy to understand for the new web designers.
