What is the current version of CSS right now, that is the norm right now?

Which CSS is mostly widely used as the normal CSS version for browsers?

Well, the W3C has made recommendations for CSS 1, CSS 2, CSS 2.1 and CSS 3.

However, if you want to play it safe for compatability of most of the modern browsers out there, I would stick with mainly properties of CSS 1.

However, if you feel a bit brave try some CSS 2 properties. And CSS3...well, good luck Smile

I would say most designers/developers abide by CSS 1 then.

The most utilized user agents (IE, Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.) support CSS 1 the best and give the designer/developer less headaches Smile

What is the current version of CSS right now?

Hi Gary,
I for one don't really think in terms of what version of CSS I'm using.
What I do consider is how the feature I want to use is supported by different browsers.

http://www.csscreator.com/attributes/

Like crazybat mentioned most browsers have good support for CSS1 and the more modern browsers support most of CSS2, but CSS3 is still only partly supported and only a few browsers support any of it.

It will be a long time (a few years) before CSS3 is supported enough to make full use of it.

Luckily CSS is designed to degrade gracefully in browsers that don't support a particular feature.
So If you use a feature that a browser doesn't support it should just ignore it and not crash the page. Cool

Hope that helps

Additionally, if you made a page with all 120 properties on one it'd be a much more useful resource.

Also you're a very brave man letting anyone go in and edit the details, but it will lead me to not trust it entirely...
