Hiya Chris! Styling your web page can be done in many ways. Using external stylesheets is the most used way to style your web page and most recommended one as well. But there are other ways as well, like you could style your web page using <style> tags directly on your HTML. It'll override any style that exists for the same element or class or id in your external style sheet, right? There are other ways as well like you could do it via JavaScript as well. But using external stylesheets is the most recommended one. I hope it helped. (:
