HTML styles provide an easy way to apply character and paragraph formatting with a single click. You can create and store HTML-based styles to quickly format text items such as headings, paragraphs, and copyright notices. Let's see how to use this convenient timesaver.
As mentioned in the preceding chapter, HTML styles are an authoring-time convenience that apply basic HTML tags that work with any version of any browser. HTML styles don't offer "live updating" like Cascading Style Sheets or Dreamweaver's Template and Library features. An HTML style must be reapplied manually if you want to update formatting. HTML styles apply HTML formatting tags and therefore take precedence over globally applied CSS styles.
