link tag


link tag defines the relationship between a document and an external resource.

The link tag is most used to link to style sheets.

Note: <link> element is an empty element, it contains attributes only.

Note2: This element goes only in the head section, but it can appear any number of times.

Note3: In html the <link> tag has no end tag.  In xhtml, the <link> tag must be properly closed.

Eg:

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