I am not 100% sure what you are asking but if it is what I think it is, here goes.

There is more than one way to link CSS to an HTML file. The best way to do it is externally. If you want to link to an external CSS file, the code format is:

<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="path_to_css.css">
</head>
......
</html>

Be sure to replace "path_to_css" with the actual location of your css file.

You can also include your CSS in the HTML file or style your elements inline however, it is highly recommended that you keep your presentation and layout separate.
