Associated style sheet

Post by Walter Metzger »

Good day,

I use
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="anlage1/styles.css" />
and get the point (validate - Accessibility)

Documents must be organized so they are readable without requiring an associated style sheet

I do not understand why this "must be". Just the concentrated styles.css has for me only preshares,
and I do also not see the way to realize the point.

Hi Walter,

That message, which is just a message and not an error or warning, is just a reminder to make sure your page would still be usable & functional if the style sheet was not available. That is, don't rely on styles to provide content or functionality, only presentational styling.

If you do not want to see that message anymore, then you can right-click on it and disable it when it's displayed in CSE HTML Validator's Results Window.
