Perhaps the most underappreciated variable in professional front-end web development is the presence of other style sheets in addition to your own.

This means that, somewhere in Firefox’s user agent style sheet exists a CSS rule similar to the following one that is responsible for creating that blue border around the hyperlinked image: ]eicw ^kn`an61ltokhe`^hqa7 y Of course, since this is just ordinary CSS, we can do a lot to remove all this inconsistency by adding a little CSS of our own that would override what the browser’s default styles specify. Here’s an example of one such style sheet that overrides the styles we saw applied in the earlier screenshots: 8da]`: 8pepha:AranuCkk`>ku@aoanraoBq`ca8+pepha: 8opuhapula9patp+_ooia`e]9o_naaj: ^k`u&w i]ncej6,7 l]``ejc6,7 heop)opuha)pula6jkja7 patp)]hecj6habp7 patp)`a_kn]pekj6jkja7 ^kn`an)^kppki6jkja7 `eolh]u6ejheja7 bkjp)oeva6-0lt7 bkjp)saecdp6jkni]h7 bkjp)opuha6jkni]h7 ^kn`an6jkja7 _khkn6,,,7 y 8+opuha: 8+da]`: This single CSS rule overrides most of the default styles that the browser provides, by selecting all elements (the & in the selector, described later) inside the 8^k`u: element.

Therefore, five stages of the CSS cascade exist that relate to the origin of a style sheet. In order of precedence from least to greatest, they are CSS declarations in the user agent style sheet CSS declarations in user style sheets of normal importance CSS declarations in author style sheets of normal importance CSS declarations in author style sheets that are eilknp]jp CSS declarations in user style sheets that are eilknp]jp 3.
