Hi Experts,

Is it possible to use variables in CSS? For example, if I want to set the width to couple of elements to the same value, can I do this in one place?

Thank you

Nope.  CSS does not support variables.  Some people get around this using their server side language like PHP to process their CSS files.  Or they set things using javascript.

You could use one of the CSS extension frameworks such as SASS or LESS. Otherwise, as Dave says, build your CSS dynamically using PHP - fairly straight forward to do.
