Can anyone give a very basic idea for how of how to link a CSS into html (completely new to this).

Lets just say for basic I simply wanted to turn all the text on every page red.

You insert the CSS code to link to your CSS file inbetween your
<HEAD>

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

</HEAD>

---------------
For turning the all your words red with the CSS...

:: Download Topstyle ::

Easy thing to use.

If you need the codes to be done, gladly help but it'd be better if you tired first. Best way to learn.

Here's an example:
---------------------------------------
BODY {
color : #FF0000;
}
---------------------------------------
That would be used directly in your CSS file. Everything will be red. However, this will NOT work for any words within Tables.

Use:
---------------------------------------
TABLE {
color : #FF0000;
}
---------------------------------------


---------------------------------------
You can also apply STYLEs directly into your HTML codes:
---------------------------------------
<HEAD>

<style>
<!--

BODY {
color : #FF0000;
}

TABLE {
color : #FF0000;
}
//-->
</style>

</HEAD>
---------------------------------------
I'm not a pro, but I know how to get things. :D

Now, I re-read and perhaps you wanted the Background to be red too??

Add this either in the CSS file or within the STYLE:

-->

BODY {
background-color : #FF0000;
}

<--


Just a note, you don't have to have "red". You can have shades of red, darker lighter, etc. Any colour :) to a point of course.
There is a colour-safe palette for the web::

You can find references all over the place :>
W3C is the best place to look. They set the standards for everything RE the web and web publishing::

Thanks for the help - I am having a play with it now and I appear to be getting the effects I want.
