style HTML Attribute

The "style" attribute in HTML is used to add inline styling to an element. It allows you to apply styles directly to an element, rather than using a separate CSS stylesheet. The attribute value is a string that contains CSS rules.

For example, in the following code snippet, the style attribute is used to set the background color and font size of a div element:


<div style="background-color: blue; font-size: 20px;">This is a div element with inline styles</div>

The style attribute can be used on most HTML elements and it's useful to add temporary or unique styles to specific elements. However, it's generally considered best practice to use a separate CSS stylesheet to define styles for an entire website or application, as it makes the styles easier to maintain and reuse.

It's worth noting that the style attribute is widely supported by all modern browsers, and also it is a standard attribute, which means it is part of the official HTML specification.
