Below is a description of all parts of a link to a stylesheet that you use to style your web pages with -

The 'link' element you have shown, points to your local address on your own pc. For this to run properly in a commercial site, you will have to change the localhost( to your server folder directory where you are storing your css files.

The 'rel="stylesheet"' attribute specifies that this link is for a stylesheet, which means it is intended to load CSS styles to be applied to your HTML document containing this link.

The href attribute specifies the URL or path of the stylesheet. In your case, the URL is ''. This might differ when loaded on your server i.e. - ''.

The 'Id' query parameter is used to pass additional information to a server or script which might contain different attributes than say another css file with the same name but no Id. Another form of using an id will be similar to this - 'link id="njs_7kbbsutijtm" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href=""'

As a function, the browser would attempt to fetch the stylesheet file from the specified address ( If the file exists and is a valid CSS file, the styles defined in that stylesheet would be applied to your HTML document.

If the file is not found, the browser will fail to fetch the stylesheet, and the styles defined within it will not be applied to the HTML document.
