Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video The style element, part of HTML Essential Training.
- In our last exercise we discussed why…it was a bad idea to style HTML elements directly…using inline styles.…It's a lot more efficient to have styles that can…affect an entire page, or an entire site,…all at once.…So, to introduce that concept, we're going to take a look…at introduce the style element…and move our styles in to the head of our document.…To do this we're gonna work with the style.htm…which is found in the 07_03 directory…and again you can see we are sort of picking up…where we left off.…We have a heading 2 on the page…and currently it's using inline styling to…make itself red…and change its font weight to normal.…
So I want to move that up so that any h2s that might be on…this page are affected by that…and I'm not having to do this inline…styling for every single one of them.…Again we're going to do this in the head of the document.…Remember the head is where those sort of invisible things…that help make the page work, go,…and we're going to do a style tag.…So we're going to go ahead and open up a style tag…
