Steganography has been in use since the presence of secret messages and this use has gained popularity as the internet became well - liked. Text steganography is a sub part of steganography that hides the message behind other cover text file. Moreover, hiding the text behind HTML coding of web pages makes the detection of steganography impractical as web pages are a fundamental building blocks of the internet. This paper reviews some of most common text steganography techniques that mainly focus on protecting text behind HTML and CSS (Cascading Style sheets) coding of web pages. This paper also proposes a new technique based on hiding text behing HTML and CSS po rtion of web page coding.
