The link element tells a browser about other resources that the page may need to load. Typically, these are the CSS or “stylesheets” which dictate how a page will appear in a browser.

We will not use this element for the first few weeks, but will rely upon it for the remainder of the semester after we start with CSS.

Note This element only requires an opening tag, as all information for the element is contained as attributes within the opening tag. This is another example of an empty element.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <!-- Other meta elements -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="./css/style.css">
