Style sheet (Definition)

A means of abstracting presentation style out of the content in a web page.

The style sheet support is now standardized around the CSS standards and provides a way to make the HTML document relate to the content of the page, while the style sheet contains a definition of how it should look. This has great benefits for the maintenance of a web site and allows you to significantly change the appearance of the whole site simply by specifying a new style sheet.
