Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding levels of inheritance, part of XHTML and HTML Essential Training.
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets and the word CSS refers to inheritance,…and this is about how styles inherit their properties from one another in CSS.…So let's take a look at an example here and see how that works and what that means.…So here we have a document that's formatted with CSS and here we have the same…document in the text editor and you will notice that there aren't any styles in here.…All of the styles in this document are defined in this external style sheet…right here, which is brought in with this link tag, and so that's in the head…element and link tag has a rel attribute which stands for relationship and that…is set to stylesheet.…
And it has a type attribute, which is set to text/css, and it has an h attribute,…which is the location of the file, which is here in this external CSS file.…And the style sheet is in this external file right here, which is also loaded up…in our text editor, and there it is.…You will see that it doesn't have a lot in it.…It's not a very complicated style sheet and that's the style sheet that's used…
