The style solves a big problem

HTML tags were originally designed to define the content of documents, as in the following example:

<h1> This is a heading </h1> <p> This is a paragraph. </p>

The style sheet defines how to display HTML elements, just like the font tags and color attributes in HTML do. The style is usually saved in an external .css file. We only need to edit a simple CSS document to change the layout and appearance of all pages.
