Where should I add CSS within an .aspx page

When I add the following code in a ContentPlaceHolder in my .aspx page (creating using Visual Studio 2010), it says that "Element 'style' cannot be nested within element 'div'".

When I add it outside a  ContentPlaceHolder, it does not accept it.
When I use the second code snippet, it says "You can only have one <head runat="server"> control on a page."

Please let me know where I must add the code.
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="Js/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <style type="text/css">
    .imgMargin
    {
    margin-left:3px;
    margin-right : 3px;
    }
    </style>
</head>

Open in new window

<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" Runat="Server">
<style type="text/css">
    .buttonMargin
    {
    margin-left:2px;
    margin-right : 2px;
    }
    </style>

Open in new window

When I remove 'runat="server"' from the second code snippet, it says that "Element 'head' cannot be nested within element 'div'".

style elements should go inside the head element, which should go in front of the body element (which should be generated by the MainContent placeholder).

Try moving the MainContent after the head element, place the style element inside the head and remove the runat="server" attribute from the head element

Hi dshrenik,
Are you using a Master Page? If so, create the ContentPlaceHolder within the <head> section of the master page. In your ASPX page, add the CSS style in the <asp:content>.

The CSS must go inside this:

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent" Runat="Server">
