  • Last Updated : 06 Dec, 2018

Is it possible to include one CSS file in another?
Yes, It is possible to include one CSS file in another and it can be done multiple times. Also, import multiple CSS files in the main HTML file or in the main CSS file. It can be done by using @import keyword.

Example 1:

  • HTML section: File name is index.html




    <!DOCTYPE html> 
    <html
        <head>
        <!-- linking css file with html file -->
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="style1.css">
        </head
          
        <body
            <center
            <marquee><h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1> </marquee>
            <div class="css1">GeeksforGeeks: It is a computer science
            portal. It is an educational website. Prepare for the
            Recruitment drive of product based companies like 
            Microsoft, Amazon, Adobe etc with a free online placement 
            preparation course.
            </div
            </center
        </body
    </html>                                

    
    

    Output: Without using CSS file

  • CSS section1: File name is style1.css




    <!-- Including one css file into other -->
    @import "style2.css";
       
     h1 {
         color:green;   
     }
       
    .css1 {
         color:black;
         background-image: linear-gradient(to right, #DFF1DF, #11A00C);
         position:static;   
     }

    
    

    Output: Using style1.css file without importing the second CSS file (style2.css).

  • CSS section2: File name is style2.css




    body {
        background:black;
            opacity: 0.5;
    }

    
    

    Output:After importing the style2.css file into the style1.css file by using @import keyword.

Note: Many CSS file can be imported using one CSS file.

            <h1>GeeksforGeeks<h1
            <div include="form-input-select()"
                <select required> 
                    <option value="">Example Placeholder</option
                      
                    <!-- Available Options -->

                    <option value="4">CodeComunity</option
                    <option value="5">Coders</option
                </select
            </div
        </body
    </html>                                  

    
    

    Output: Without using CSS file

  • CSS Section1: File name is style1.css




    @import "style2.css";
    body { 
        border:black; 
        justify-content: center; 
        text-align: center; 
    }
