Style sheets describe the presentation of elements of a web page on screens, in print, or any other media and are actively promoted by W3C.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet mechanism which is used for this purpose.

In CSS, a number of style properties of a element can be specified. Each property has a name and a value, separated by a colon (:) and each property declaration is separated by a semi-colon (;).

<h1 style=”font-size:24px; color:red “>Vskills</h1>
