    [CSS] Not a problem just a general question about how CSS works

    I've been reading up lately on CSS3 and some of it's features. I realise some browsers support different things and as far as i know no one browser supports 100% of CSS3 features.

    My question is basically how does CSS work, IE what makes browsers behave differently? Is CSS something embedded into the browsers coding therefore old browsers don't support new CSS rules or is it something completely different to that?

    A browser is required to accept html and css and turn them into a nice picture to display. So if the definition of html and/or css changes, the browser vendor needs to update his browser code, test and release a new version, and convince all his users to install a new version of the browser. Add to that the html5/css3 release schedule (in the future from today), you can imagine this is not something that happens too fast, and certainly not on the same schedule across every vendor.
