Multiple style will Cascade into One

CSS Style can be specified:

  • Inside an HTML element.
  • Inside the head section of the HTML page.
  • In an external CSS file, even multiple external style sheets can be referenced inside a single HTML document.

What style will be used when there is more than one style specified for an HTML element?

In generally we can say that all the CSS styles will cascade into a new visual style sheet by the following rules:

  • Browser default 
  • External style sheet
  • Internal style sheet (in the head section)
  • Inline style sheet (inside the HTML elements) this style sheet has the highest priority.

So, an inline style sheet has the highest priority which means that it will override a style defined in the head tag or the external style sheet or browser default value.

If the link to the external style sheet is placed after the internal style sheet in HTML the external style sheet will override the internal style sheet.
