Chapter 4. Using the Base CSS

Applying consistent styling to HTML elements such as headings, paragraphs, tables, and forms is generally easy but a time-consuming process. In addition to including Normalize.css (http://necolas.github.io/normalize.css/) to render HTML elements consistently across browsers and in line with modern web standards, Bootstrap provides default styling for typography, code, tables, forms, buttons, and image elements.

In this chapter, we will see how to use the Bootstrap Base CSS in your HTML pages and how to customize it.

  • Customizing the Bootstrap Base CSS using LESS variables
