Sometimes you have need of including content from a style sheet or referencing a file path or including a font name that has spaces in its name or referencing an HTML element’s attribute value. To accomplish these tasks, CSS supports a type of value called strings. Strings A string is any sequence of characters. For example, “Hello, World” is a string. In most programming languages and in CSS, strings are enclosed within either single or double quotation marks. A string is what is known as a data type.
In the next section, I continue the discussion of CSS property values with a look at how CSS interprets numbers. Numbers CSS allows numbers as values for several properties. Two types of numbers are accepted by CSS: integers and real numbers. Like strings, integers and real numbers are data types and are often used in CSS for the measurement of length. The first type, integer, is expected to be exclusively a whole number, meaning no decimals are allowed.
Strings may contain text, numbers, symbols — any type of character. An integer can be a number that has a positive or negative value, and can only be a whole number, no decimals. A real number can have decimal places. These data types are made to conform to their defined rules by the language. Whereas a string can contain any character, real numbers are expected to be whole numbers or decimals; a string cannot appear where a real number is expected, and a real number cannot appear where an integer is expected, and so on.
