๐Ÿง  Fun Fact

CSS Once Had a Different Name – Before it was officially named Cascading Style Sheets, the concept of CSS was initially referred to as โ€œStyle Sheets for HTML.โ€ The term โ€œcascadingโ€ was added to highlight its capability to allow multiple stylesheets to influence a piece of contentโ€™s appearance, with an established priority scheme to resolve conflicts.
