In this intermediate-level course you will explore and compare three methods of applying CSS (Cascading Stylesheets) styles to HTML to visually enhance a website. While HTML provides web page content, it is CSS that can turn simple text and images into a stunning website. As you compare and practice with inline styles, internal stylesheets, and external stylesheets you will gain a better understanding of how and when to use each method, and why the word “cascading” is used to describe them. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.

Skills you will develop

  • Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

  • External Styles

  • Internal Styles

  • Inline Styles

  • Link Tag

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Add inline styles to specific areas within an HTML file to enhance a web page.

  2. Add an internal stylesheet to an HTML file and populate it with a variety of CSS rules.

  3. Add code to an HTML file to link it to an external stylesheet.

  4. Use an editor to create and save an external stylesheet as a file separate from the HTML file.

  5. Incorporate the three types of CSS into one website and demonstrate how the application of styles cascades.
