This is an example of External CSS is linked to an HTML document

Web developers usually create external style sheets containing CSS rules that are totally separated from the HTML5 document. This a modular approach (also known as skinning) wherein if there is a need to change the CSS file, there is no need to make any changes on the HTML5. Pseudoclasses allow web developers to access to content that has not been declared. The hover pseudoclass is activated when the mouse cursor is over a specific part of the page.

An exampe of an external CSS file is shown here:
	/* Style sheets */ 
/* external style sheet */
body {font-family: arial, sans-serif;} a:hover {text-decoration: underline; } li {font-weight: bolder;} h2, em {font-family: arial, sans-serif; text-decoration: underline;} p {font-family: calibri; sans-serif; font-size: large;} ol {font-size: larger;}
Now, let's see how an external link get established within an HTML5 page. A keyword link element is used, in addition to the attribute.
