CSS is a way to tell the browser how elements on the page should look. It stands for "Cascading StyleSheets". And wikipedia is bound to have a page all about it.

Css is code webblog or  webmaster use to editing blog themes. It is to treat it as an html, extension to help simplify for design website. It is very high flexibility because it allows designer can control  entire interface of website.

CSS means cascade style sheet. Which is actually a web coding type of thing used to tell web browser about how site should render/how the design/styles of the web/html elements should be.

Cascading style sheets (CSS) are used to determine the appearance of HTML pages in a browser. They provide an easy way to change the visual appearance of a group of HTML files without changing each individual file. CSS allows the separation of web page content (i.e., the text of a page) from the way that the content is displayed (i.e., the font, size, and color of the text). The standards for CSS are maintained by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

It's good technique to use external css files instead of inline styling. The code can be executed faster and you have a separate file of styling (which is easier to edit).

Google - "Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language."  
 
It basically allows the programmer to style a webpage, in whatever way they please, as well as effectively section and display their pages.
 
It can reduce the amount of code (reducing the amount of memory necessary to store pages), which in turn can decrease the load time of your webpage.

The big idea of CSS is to separate content from presentation - if you want all the (second tier) headings on your page to be purple and underlined, rather than editing each one to add the HTML tags for "purple" and "underlined", you can simply tag them all "h2" (a structural tag) and include a style definition (on page, or in a linked stylesheet) that says that all h2 elements should be purple and underlined.
 
The main advantages:
 - it makes the page easier to maintain - if you decide you want the h2 elements to be green instead of purple, you only need to change the style rather than editing each element, and if you decide to add another heading, you only need to tag it as h2, not copy over the colour and underlining.
 - it allows you to reuse the same style for multiple pages across a site - as above, it makes adding and changing things easier, and it gives your entire site a more consistent look.
 - it allows the user to override some or all of your presentation decisions - that may not sound like such a good thing - after all, you designed your site to appear a certain way, so why should the user get to change that? - but users with special needs may be unable to use your site without changing the presentation, and users with strong personal preferences may be unwilling to. For most people, increased accessibility at minimal/no extra effort is a good thing.
 - most of the time, it takes less code to achieve the same effect - the obvious exception is when you only have one matching element for a given style, where you end up with one copy of the presentation code either way, but CSS adds the code to specify which element(s) that presentation code should apply to. It's also possible to get seduced by the easy special effects and end up with more code overall because you're doing so much more with the presentation, but even that's mostly only going to apply to small, simple pages, or to situations where you set out to make your presentation inconsistent.
 
 
Somewhat ironically, an oft-repeated maxim among computer programmers is "don't repeat yourself" - where possible, only tell the computer something once, and then refer back to that if you need the same thing later. CSS is that idea applied to HTML presentation.
