Macarena, sung by Los del Río and remixed by The Bayside Boys, became a major dance craze and cultural phenomenon.

And in 1996, the first version of CSS specification is published. The standard contains specification to select font style,size and color

The standard allowed the user to select font style and size and change the colour of the text and background.
