The style global attribute contains CSS styling declarations to be applied to the element. Note that it is recommended for styles to be defined in a separate file or files. This attribute and the element have mainly the purpose of allowing for quick styling, for example for testing purposes.
A Mapbox style is a document that defines the visual appearance of a map: what data to draw, the order to draw it in, and how to style the data when drawing it. A style document is a JSON object with specific root level and nested properties. This specification defines and describes these properties.
For platform-appropriate documentation of style-related features, developers using the Mapbox Maps SDK for iOS should consult the iOS SDK API reference, and developers using the Mapbox Maps SDK for macOS should consult the macOS SDK API reference.
A Mapbox style consists of a set of root properties, some of which describe a single global property, and some of which contain nested properties. Some root properties, like version, name, and metadata, don't have any influence over the appearance or behavior of your map, but provide important descriptive information related to your map. Others, like layers and sources, are critical and determine which map features will appear on your map and what they will look like. Some properties, like center, zoom, pitch, and bearing, provide the map renderer with a set of defaults to be used when initially displaying the map.
In the same manner as elements, elements can include media attributes that contain media queries, allowing you to selectively apply internal stylesheets to your document depending on media features such as viewport width.
A cryptographic nonce (number used once) used to allow inline styles in a style-src Content-Security-Policy. The server must generate a unique nonce value each time it transmits a policy. It is critical to provide a nonce that cannot be guessed as bypassing a resource's policy is otherwise trivial.
This attribute explicitly indicates that certain operations should be blocked on the fetching of critical subresources. @import-ed stylesheets are generally considered as critical subresources, whereas background-image and fonts are not.

Build your knowledge and understanding of AP style guidance, whether you're a new communicator or a seasoned professional. Created in partnership with three experienced AP style instructors, these study guides will step you through quizzes covering key Stylebook topics in both the mechanics of writing and the more complex issues of quality storytelling.
Chicago-style source citations come in two varieties: (1) notes and bibliography and (2) author-date. If you already know which system to use, follow one of the links above to see sample citations for a variety of common sources. If you are unsure about which system to use, read on.
Aside from the use of numbered notes versus parenthetical references in the text, the two systems share a similar style. Follow the links at the top of this page to see examples of some of the more common source types cited in both systems.
A style guide is a set of standards for the writing, formatting, and design of documents. A book-length style guide is often called a style manual or manual of style (MoS or MOS). (Typical examples include the Chicago Manual of Style and the AMA Manual of Style.) A short style guide, of several pages or several dozen pages, is often called a style sheet, although that term also has multiple other meanings. The standards documented in a style guide can be applied either for general use, or be required usage for an individual publication, a particular organization, or a specific field.
A style guide establishes standard style requirements to improve communication by ensuring consistency both within a document, and across multiple documents. Because practices vary, a style guide may set out standards to be used in areas such as punctuation, capitalization, citing sources, formatting of numbers and dates, table appearance and other areas. The style guide may require certain best practices in writing style, usage, language composition, visual composition, orthography, and typography. For academic and technical documents, a guide may also enforce the best practice in ethics (such as authorship, research ethics, and disclosure) and compliance (technical and regulatory). For translations, a style guide may be used to enforce consistent grammar choices such as tenses, formality levels in tones, and localization decisions such as units of measurements.
Style guides are specialized in a variety of ways, from the general use of a broad public audience, to a wide variety of specialized uses, such as for students and scholars of various academic disciplines, medicine, journalism, the law, government, business in general, and specific industries. The term house style refers to the styling defined by the style guide of a particular publisher or other organization.
Style guides vary widely in scope and size, and writers working in most large industries or professional sectors reference a specific style guide, written for their industry or sector when writing very specialized document types. These guides are, for the most part, only relevant and useful for peer-to-peer specialist documentation or to help writers working in specific industries and/or sectors communicate highly technical information in scholarly articles or industry white papers.
Professional reference style guides from different countries give authoritative advice on their language and how to use it, such as the New Oxford Style Manual from Oxford University Press, UK and The Chicago Manual of Style from the University of Chicago Press, US; Australia and Canada both have style guides created by their governments which are available online.
A short style guide is often called a style sheet. A comprehensive guide tends to be long and is often called a style manual or manual of style (MOS or MoS). In many cases, a project such as one book, journal, or monograph series typically has a short style sheet that cascades over the somewhat larger style guide of an organization such as a publishing company, whose content is usually called house style. Most house styles, in turn, cascade over an industry-wide or profession-wide style manual that is even more comprehensive. Some examples of these industry style guides include the following:
Most style guides are revised from time to time to accommodate changes in conventions and usage. The frequency of updating and the revision control are determined by the subject. For style manuals in reference work format, new editions typically appear every 1 to 20 years. For example, the AP Stylebook is revised annually, and, as of 2021, the Chicago, APA, and ASA manuals are in their 17th, 7th, and 4th editions, respectively. Many house styles and individual project styles change more frequently, especially for new projects.
If, after reading this handout and looking at your own writing, you are still struggling to understand style problems, bring a few of your old papers to an appointment at the Writing Center. Using already finished papers will help your tutor show you where your chronic style problems occur, why they occur, and how you can fix them.
Style sheets solve these problems at the same time they supersede thelimited range of presentation mechanisms in HTML. Style sheets make it easy tospecify the amount of white space between text lines, the amount lines areindented, the colors used for the text and the backgrounds, the font size andstyle, and a host of other details.
Style sheets, by contrast, apply to specific media or media groups. A stylesheet intended for screen use may be applicable when printing, but is of littleuse for speech-based browsers. This specification allows you to define thebroad categories of media a given style sheet is applicable to. This allowsuser agents to avoid retrieving inappropriate style sheets. Style sheetlanguages may include features for describing media dependencies within thesame style sheet.
In many cases, authors will take advantage of a common style sheet for agroup of documents. In this case, distributing style rules throughout thedocument will actually lead to worse performance than using a linked stylesheet, since for most documents, the style sheet will already be present in thelocal cache. The public availability of good style sheets will encourage thiseffect.
Note. The sample default style sheet for HTML 4 that isincluded in [CSS2] expresses generally accepted default style informationfor each element. Authors and implementors alike might find this a usefulresource. 041b061a72
