Hello Pooja,

CSS will not affect your ranking. Style sheets don't change any
element's function, they just add style to the specified element.

For instance ...

-h1-This is a regular heading.-/h1-
<h1>This is a regular heading</h1>
-h1 style="color: darkcyan"-This is a styled heading-/h1-
<h1 style="color: darkcyan">This is a styled heading</h1>

I've replaced the "<" with "-" for this example. I hope it worked.

No change in the function of the heading just the color. :) Now,
embedding ...

If you want to apply a style sheet to an entire site, it is best to
use external sheets using this tag ...

-link rel="stylesheet" href="./filename.css"-

For just one page, it's usually best to embed the CSS.

Thank you for using style! James ~*
