Embedded Style Sheets

Embedded style sheets allow you to define styles for the whole HTML document in one place.

Embedded style sheets refer to when you embed style sheet information into an HTML document using the <style> element. You do this by embedding the style sheet information within <style></style> tags in the head of your document.


The CSS syntax for embedded style sheets is exactly the same as other CSS code.

For example, to use the following code, simply place it between the <head></head> tags of your HTML document:

Now, whenever any of those elements are used within the body of the document, they will be formatted as instructed in the above style sheet.


Embedded style sheets are suited for documents with unique design requirements. If the styles need to be applied across muliple documents, you should link to an external style sheet instead of using an embedded style sheet.
