Definition and usage

The HTML <style> element is used to style an HTML document or part of a document without the need for an external stylesheet.

It is usually placed in the <head> element of an HTML document, and it specifies how HTML elements should render in a browser.

Coding example:

    The <style> element being used to style the h2 tag
