A Brief Introduction to Styles

The font face of a line of text, the colored border around a sidebar, the underline of a link—these are all examples of styles in action. A style is simply the way in which markup, such as HTML content, is displayed to the user.

All browsers have built-in style rules for displaying HTML; for example, they display the text marked with the <h1> tag as bold, extra-large text and the <p> tag as normal text with a blank line after it. These built-in style rules can be extended or changed by using CSS.
