Style Guide - Cascading Style Sheets

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the presentation of a document written in a markup language.

The VA uses multiple CSS files to implement the current template for VA web pages.  These are automatically included for all websites that are Electronic Content Management System forms based.

You can access the CSS files to determine the styles available to you and include them in custom sites (if needed) as shown below.
