CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets.  In this post we will see inline css in visualforce pageCSS defines how a particular html elements gets displayed.
We can use CSS in visualforce page to define how a particular visualforce component will be displayed.
It saves a lot of styling work.

Let us see how we can use css as inline with a visualforce components also lets see how we can call a css class. All the element properties can be stored in a css class and then we have to just call that class against a particular element in visualforce page.

Below is a visualforce example where css has been used:

<apex:page standardcontroller="account">
     width: 300px;
 <apex:form >
   <apex:pageBlock >
     <apex:panelGrid columns="1">
         <apex:commandButton value="Submit" style="width:100px"/>
         <apex:commandButton value="Submit" style="width:150px"/>
         <apex:commandButton value="Submit" style="width:220px;color:red"/>
   <apex:pageblock >
      <apex:commandbutton value="Submit" styleclass="buttonClass"/>


CSS class should be defined between style tags <style></style>
