Style Guide

Cascading Style Sheet

The Pasadena City College website uses Cascading Style sheet to define the font properties (i.e. face, color, size, spacing, leading). PCC uses a percentage (%) and em (height of the letter 'm') system in specifying the size of the fonts. Due to the fact that CSS performs uniquely in certain browsers and computer platforms, we designed a way to detect each browser and platform the user is using. The website works best with browsers from Windows and MAC Internet Explorer 4, Netscape 4, PC Opera, PC Mozilla and MAC Safari. Here are samples where CSS are being used.
