Inline Styles


<p style="color: red; font-size: 16px;">This text is styled inline.</p>
  

In this example, the style attribute is used to define the color and font size of the <p> element.

Inline styles are applied directly to a specific HTML element using the style attribute. Inline styles are useful when you need to apply a style to a specific element only once, and don't want to create a separate stylesheet for it.

More example on how to use inline styles in html

1. Background Color:


<body style="background-color:darkblue;">
    
<h1>This is a heading</h1>
<p>This is a paragraph.</p>

</body>

2. Paragraph color and font-size :


 <p style = "color:red;">This is red</p>  
      <p style = "font-size:20px;">This is thick</p>  
      <p style = "color:green;">This is green</p>  
      <p style = "color:green; font-size:20px;" >Hello, World!</p>

3. Heading color and font-size :


<h1 style="text-align:center;">This is a Centered Heading</h1>
<h1 style="font-size:100%;">This is a heading</h1>
<h1 style="font-family:courier;">This is a heading</h1>
<h1 style="color:darkblue;">This is a dark blue heading</h1>

Embedded Styles


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title>My Page</title>
	<style>
		p {
			color: blue;
			font-size: 14px;
		}
	</style>
</head>
<body>
	<p>This text is styled using an embedded style.</p>
	<p>This text is also styled using an embedded style.</p>
</body>
</html>

In this example, the embedded style is defined in the <style> tag in the <head> section of the document. The style applies to all <p> elements in the document. Embedded styles are defined in the <head> section of an HTML document using the <style> tag.
Embedded styles are useful when you need to apply a style to multiple elements throughout the document. Here's an example of how to define an embedded style:


External Stylesheets


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>My Page</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">
</head>
<body>
<p class="example1">This text is styled using an external stylesheet.</p>
<p class="example2">This text is also styled using an external stylesheet.</p>
</body>
</html>

.example1 {
color: red;
}
.example2 {
color:green;
}

In this example, the external stylesheet is defined in a separate file called styles.css. The stylesheet contains the styles for all <p> elements in the document. External stylesheets are defined in a separate CSS file and linked to an HTML document using the <link> tag.
External stylesheets are useful when you need to apply a style to multiple pages on a website. Here's an example of how to define an external stylesheet:
