Hi,

I am new to HTML and would like to specify what font to use for h1, h2, etc.

Is this something I should do in the style.css file?  Where do I find that sheet?

How do I use this line?

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

Create a new css file and name it style.css
Place it in the same folder as your html file.

To specify h1, h2, etc..
Type this in your css file


h1 {
    font-weight: bold;
    font-size:20px;
    font-family: Verdana;
    color: #BC8F8F;
}

h2 {
    font-weight: bold;
    font-size:30px;
    font-family: Verdana;
    color: #BC8F8F;
}


So next time you use <h1> or <h2>, it will follow the css.

<style type="text/css">
h1, h2 {
font-family: Georgia, Veranda;
color: blue;
}
h3 {
color: red;
text-decoration: underline;
}
</style>
<h1>Heading 1</h1>
<h2>Heading 2</h2>
<h3>Heading 3</h3>

You can also place external css file in a different folder. e.g.
 <link href="../style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />  (relative path, up one folder)
 <link href="/css/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> (absolute path, from root)

okay, I have that indent feature working.  But I still wonder where the <h1> and <h2> are defined.

My new style.css file has one element defined: <p>

That naturally overrides the default behavior of <p>

But I wonder where the CSS file defines the header definitions.  Any ideas?

It's up to you to define them, using one of three methods:
Inline <h1 style="...">
Internal style sheet: as in my demo above.
External style sheet: place the code that's between the <style>...</style> tags into a css file.

You can add as many styles internally or externally as needed.
