Stage 1 : Discover the power of cascading Style Sheets (css)
Cascading style sheets are used to add themes to the website
To understand how, visit http://csszengarden.com/ and try different themes by clicking on different links. They are the same HTML files but different css files.
How to add a cascading style sheet to your website
google.com Browse css templates and download one that you like.
Make sure that it is copied in the same folder as your project (the css file is beside your html files)
Add this code in the head section changing only the cssfilename
