How to Reference an External CSS Stylesheet from an HTML File

To reference an external CSS stylesheet from an HTML page, you need to add the HTML code into the <head> section of your web page, referencing the location of the .css stylesheet file.

For example, if you had a stylesheet file called styles.css at root directory level, you would use:

<link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Note, the rel attribute describes the type of relationship the linked file has to the html page.

For ease of maintenance, web developers will often create a css folder to hold all the stylesheets the website uses. For example, if the css folder contained a style sheet called custom.css, you would use:

<link href="css/custom.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
