Table of contentsBypass table of contents
The HTML style element allows authors to insert style sheets information inside the document. Differently from the "style" attribute, this element allows the insertion of classes or ID selectors, increasing the versatility of the style sheets implementation.
The HTML style element can only be inserted in the document's head (HTML head element).
Another alternative for inserting style sheet information, and maybe more convenient because of the possibility of sharing it among many documents, is to place a reference to an external file using the HTML link tag. This way, many documents can link to a single style sheets files making it easier to edit the visual aspects of the elements.
The purpose of this attribute is to provide a title for the element. Its value must be a short and accurate description of the element. Browsers usually render it as a "tool tip" when the user puts the mouse pointer over the element for a small period of time.
Specifies the language of an element's content. The default value in "unknown".
When writing XHTML 1.0 documents, the attribute used to specify the language of an elements is "xml:lang". For forward and backward compatibility both attributes can be used simultaneously like in the example below. Note, that in XHTML 1.1 the "lang" attribute has been completely replaced by "xml:lang" and its use is no longer valid.
This attribute indicates the direction in which the texts of the element must be read. This includes content, attribute values and tables. It has two possible values that are case-insensitive:
Declares the style sheet language used in the content of the element, as a content-type.
Specifies the media for which the element's content has been designed. It can be a single media or a comma-separated list of medias. The default value is "screen".
This element doesn't support any event.
