“HTML and CSS have come a long way from where they started. In
the 90’s, before CSS was formally introduced, the focus was purely
on the functionality of web pages.
“They looked ugly, but no one really complained since they were
not aware of what promises CSS would bring. The only way to make
the page look beautiful was to use loads of images but the lack of
high speed internet connections prevented developers from using
that approach since it hampered the user’s experience.”
