  11. In first h1 tag we used inline css style method, so you have as like given example define style tag at the open tag of html element with required styles, separated by semicolon (;).
  12. From these three inline having first priority, then internal and only external. Reason is inline pattern directly injecting styles for selected elements than other two. In this order it gives priority, if you giving 3 types of style to same element with same property except values.
  13. Then, as we said order-wise it will takes css for that particular element. The inline style only replicate on webpage. May everyone know for remaining purpose once we tell you. Check whether class or id attributes same with all type of implementation of css styles.
  14. Otherwise you cannot get result before execution, once check it.
