Div tags, in concert with a cascading style sheet, facilitate the creation and formatting of boxes on your Web page. You can use colored boxes to visually organize material on the screen.

Fancy Fonts

Cascading style sheets allow you to easily add formatting to your text without the effort of putting font tags around every header, paragraph, phrase, or letter to be formatted.

For example, the first letter of each of your paragraphs can be displayed in a different font with a colored background if you wish to replicate the look of an ancient manuscript or just give a little extra styling to your page.
