property UsingCSS: TUsingCSS;



The UsingCSS property sets the position of the style table (inside or outside the HTML file). With the usInternal setting the table is placed directly in the HTML file that can look, for example, as follows (Template = htClassic):


<Style type="text/css">

BODY  background: #333399; color: #FFFFFF; font-family: Arial;

A:link  color: #69EF7D

A:visited  color: #FF00FF

A:active  color: #00FF00

.ThRows  background-color: #FF0000; color: #FFFFFF; font-weight: bold; text-align: center

.TrRows  background-color: #007AEC; color: #FFFFFF

.TrOdd  background-color: #006BCE; color: #FFFFFF



If UsingCSS = usExternal, the text above will be placed in the file specified by the CSSFileName property, and in the HTML file itself there will be only one line


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


The use of the usExternal setting can be very helpful in case you create several HTML files; then to change, for example, the background color of the even table rows in all the created files it is enough to correct only one setting of the style file (in this example it is Animals.css).
