These are the documents which contain the styling rules that can be applied to HTML or XML, (along with some structural formats)

Also, CDN is also known as Content Delivery Network. It is a system of distributed servers around the world that are able to provide fast delivery of Internet content according to the geographic locations of the users.

WordPress loads js files from its own directory and for any cause if the js files are untrustworthy or missing the editor will stop responding.
