My company provides Search Engine Optimization. A popular technique that is used is a redirection technique. It's where you will see this link repeadedly inside the HTML code on the index.html page. I would like to understand more about how this works or what this line of code is saying or means.

<LINK REL="stylesheet" type="text/css" HREF="style/style1.css">

This is telling your HTML a CSS (Cascading StyleSheet) to use to format the page.

More information at:

http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/html40/head/link.html

For the newer generation of browsers 5.0+, you can also use:

<style type="text/css">
   @import url(style/style1.css);
</style>

The @import format is not recommended because it is not support by many browsers; is buggy in those that do support it, and can crahs some version of Netscrap.

The link format specified is the method of referencing an external stylesheet, and is till the recommended method unles support is for level 6 browsers only.

Hello,

This question has been open for quite a while now and needs to be wrapped up.

Please do NOT accept this comment as an answer, as I am simply trying to alert those involved that the question is still open.

If any of the experts could come back and post any suggestions as to how they feel this could be wrapped up (delete, 0 PAQ, award points, etc), I'm sure the moderators would appreciate it.

Thank you,

BRUNO
