This example explores the result of a conflict between a style specified in an external stylesheet (background color of tan) and an HTML specification on a page (background color of yellow).

The style seems to take precedence over the HTML specification. This is very convenient if one wishes to add styles to a website developed without them. One can use a single external stylesheet and not worry about conflicting HTML specifications in the individual pages.
