Overriding Inline Styles with external CSS

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to override inline styles using an external CSS file.

Css inline styles have first priority in applying styles to the html elements so that we can’t override the inline styles with normal css rules.

<div class="container" style="color:green;">
   <h1>This is green color</h1>
</div>
.container{
    color: black;  /* this rule will never apply */
}

In the above example, we have added style attribute and container class to the div element but we will still see green color.

To override the inline styles we need to use !important rule in our external css file.

Example:

<div class="container" style="color:green">
   <h1>This is black color</h1>
</div>
.container{
    color: black !important; /* this rule will override inline-style */
}

Note: The !important rule not only override inline styles but also override other styles applied to that element.
