link to a style sheet in the body of a page

Sent by Paul Collins on 9 May 2006 12:12

Thanks Ian,

Yes, it does work with the full URL: it works fine in the body, but doesn't validate. The reason for
including it in the body is so I can have a single include come from the third party, being called
in the body of the document, which contains all HTML and styles for their nav. This would keep
things a little cleaner instead of me adding their style sheet to the header of every single HTML
page, as well as their navigation include to the body of the page. Would rather the style sheet was
part of their include.

Hope that makes sense?

  Still needs to be in the head no matter what. However, if you use the
  complete URL from third part that will work.
  ie <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all"

  However, I am being totally thick here as I am still not sure what you are
  trying to achieve.
