W3C Recommendation

Summary

Sets an inline style for the element.


Applies to  ?

This attribute is used to set styling in the form of CSS rules to an element.

Examples

View live example

HTML

<!doctype html>
<title>HTML Style Attribute Usage</title>

This will be white text with a blue background if all goes well! (Not in the doc page, check out the live demo.)

Usage

While this is perfectly valid, it is *highly* recommended by the community at large that you not use inline styles. Instead it is much better to simply target the element you want in your CSS and apply rules in there.

Notes

Remarks

This attribute is not accessible through scripting. To access styles through scripting, use the style object.
