Curly braces are used in CSS files. CSS stands for "Cascading Style Sheet". In CSS, we use the curly braces for certain functions.

In HTML, the example you are listing is using CSS commands inside the HTML directly with the style tags, though this method is generally frowned upon as it can get very clustered by mixing CSS declarations with an HTML document.
