Ways to insert CSS style tutorials

  • There are three ways you can apply CSS to an HTML document. These methods are such as:

    1. Inline style (the attribute style)

    2. Internal style sheet (the tag style)

    3. External style sheet (link to a style sheet)


1) Inline Style:

  • An Inline style sheet is a term that refers to style sheet information being applied to the current element.

  • Inline style sheet are should only be used where a particular style is not going to be repeated elsewhere on the page/site.

  • The definition is defined within the HTML tag in the body section of the HTML code. It must be redefined every time it is required

  • As inline style has to be defined every times, it loses its advantages and use this method sparingly.


Syntax: The syntax for inline styles is slightly simpler than that of Internal and External styles in that there is no selector and no curly brackets.


<element STYLE=" property:value">


Example: The following example shows, how to change the background and font color of a paragraph using Inline CSS Style
Example: The following example shows, how to set background using Inline CSS Style


2) Internal Style Sheet:

  • An internal style sheet should be used when a single document has a unique style.
