    Explain about style sheets in HTML.
A Stylesheet is a command or set of commands used to control the appearance and
layout of various elements on webpages, as well as simplify webpage design by
avoiding redundancy. Using stylesheets you can set the color and font of text,
the size of form textboxes, the margin between various elements on a webpage,
and much more.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) describe how documents are presented on screens, in print, or perhaps how they are pronounced. W3C has actively promoted the use of style sheets on the Web since the consortium was founded in 1994.
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) provide easy and effective alternatives to specify various attributes for the HTML tags. Using CSS, you can specify a number of style properties for a given HTML element. Each property has a name and a value, separated by a colon (:). Each property declaration is separated by a semi-colon (;).
First let's consider an example of HTML document which makes use of tag and associated attributes to specify text color and font size −
      HTML CSS
      Hello, World!
We can re-write above example with the help of Style Sheet as follows −
      HTML CSS
Hello, World!
