3.4. CSS Platforms

Starting with Cascading Style Sheet Level 1, you can use an attribute of the STYLE element to specify the syntax you are using to define style sheets. The value of the TYPE attribute is in the form of a content-type declaration; it defines the syntax used to assign style attributes. The formal CSS recommendation by the W3C promotes a syntax of content type text/css . This TYPE attribute is not required in today's leading browsers, but the CSS recommendation does not believe that there should be a default type. Therefore, I strongly recommend specifying the TYPE attribute for all style sheets, in case some other user agent (an HTML-empowered email reader, for example) should implement a strict interpretation of the CSS standard in the future. A STYLE element that relies on the CSS syntax should look like the following:

<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
...
</STYLE>
