An important term for a productivity enhancing feature found in page layout and word processing software. Used to speed text formatting and assure more consistent text formatting in a publication. The user can define a set of text formatting options (font, point size, leading, spacing, etc.) and name that set of formatting commands. Names such as "headline", "body copy", "caption" indicate the anticipated uses. Once defined, a style sheet can be applied to copy and that copy will instantly take on all attributes of that style sheet. Additional productivity gains are achieved since the user can redefine a style sheet after it has been applied to copy and the copy can be instantly modified throughout the publication. It takes just a moment to redefine a caption style, for example and modify 200 captions.
A collection of styles frequently used in a specific type of document.
A separate file that is used with a document containing generalized markup to declare how each generalized text element is to be formatted for display.
A master page layout used in document creation systems such as word processing, desktop publishing and the Web. The style sheet is a file that is used to store margins, tabs, fonts, headers, footers and other layout settings for a particular category of document. When a style sheet is selected, its format settings are applied to all the documents created under it, saving the page designer or programmer from redefining the same settings over and over again for each page. Related Term: Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) â€“ A style sheet format for HTML documents endorsed by the World Wide Web Consortium. CSS1 (Version 1.0) provides hundreds of layout settings that can be applied to all the subsequent HTML pages that are downloaded.

Style sheets can save considerable time when you apply and revise text formatting, and they provide a consistent look to your publication.

Term used in desktop publishing and typesetting for the listing of the different styles used in a publication. For example, in the preparation of this book, all chapter headings (name and number of chapter) were identified, with a name and definition of what was to be used for all such headings. The Recommended Reading involved several styles (e.g., the listing of the data about each book cited; the comments made about the book and the subheadings) to insure a consistency of appearance.

Web style sheets are a form of separation of presentation and content for web design in which the markup (i.e., HTML or XHTML) of a webpage contains the page's semantic content and structure, but does not define its visual layout (style). Instead, the style is defined in an external stylesheet file using a language such as CSS or XSL. This design approach is identified as a "separation" because it largely supersedes the antecedent methodology in which a page's markup defined both style and structure.
