How Style sheets are Implemented

There are 3 basic ways to addrepparttar 140744 functionality of Style Sheets:

1. Inline - Creatingrepparttar 140745 elements for each HTML Tag. This will allow repparttar 140746 same HTML Tag to have different styles onrepparttar 140747 same page.
2. Embedding - Creatingrepparttar 140748 elements onrepparttar 140749 page itself that will affect every occurrence of an HTML Tag.
3. Linking - Creating one page that definesrepparttar 140750 elements and include inrepparttar 140751 pages that you want to affect.

For beginners using Embedding or Linking is recommended.. The Linking Style is used when you want to userepparttar 140752 same style on multiple pages, you can then use Embedding and/or Inline on specific pages that don't fitrepparttar 140753 design style ofrepparttar 140754 Linking Sheet.

Precedence and inheritance

Asrepparttar 140755 term Cascading Style Sheets implies, more than one style sheet can be used onrepparttar 140756 same document, with different levels of importance. Generally styles from different style sheets merge together (cascade) into a virtual style.

However, If you define conflicting styles forrepparttar 140757 same HTML element,repparttar 140758 innermost definition--the one closest torepparttar 140759 individual tag-wins
The precedence Style Sheets follow is Inline, Embedding, then Linking. Inline Style takes precedence over Embedding Style, which takes precedence over Linking Style.

There is a fourth style sheet which is set not byrepparttar 140760 document author but by repparttar 140761 reader and that isrepparttar 140762 browser default. Taking this style sheet into considerationrepparttar 140763 order of precedence is:

1. Inline Style (inside HTML element) .
2. Embedding Style Sheet (insiderepparttar 140764 tag).
3. External Style Sheet.
4. Browser default.

So, an inline style (inside an HTML element) hasrepparttar 140765 highest priority, which means that it will override every style declared insiderepparttar 140766 tag, in an external style sheet, and in a browser (a default value).
