[Tutorial] How to use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in MS Word

MS Word CSS

You can use Microsoft Word to attach cascading style sheets (CSS) to your web pages.

Cascading style sheets are text files which control the formatting of web pages. There work just like templates. Inside the CCS file, you can define how the headings should look, indentations for the bullet points, table settings, background color and so on.

You can then link a CSS file to a webpage, so that when you want to change its formatting, or maybe just part of the website, you simply update the CSS file instead of having to update every single page by hand.

FYI:  If using CSS saves you just one hour per week, over the course of the year you’ll have saved over 50 hours. Multiple 50 by your hourly rate and you can see how valuable this approach can be.

To attach a cascading style sheet to a webpage, follow these steps:

  1. From the Tools menu, click Templates and Add-ins. 
  2. Click Linked CSS.
  3. Click Add.

Select the cascading style sheet (CSS) you want to add, and then click OK. 

Where are the style sheets?

You can view the style sheets that are attached to your web pages in the Styles and Formatting task pane.
