  • Since we want a specific styling for each page, we need separate CSS files for each page.
  • The basic HTML structure for page1 is as follows: – – At the top, we linked to the CSS file that will be styling the page, and we declared a DIV with id name of  , where the whole content will be laid.
  • The styling of page1.html is given below: – – The other three pages can be totally different, but for the sake of simplicity I am just using the same template for each HTML page and slightly different CSS files (different  text-colors).
