In HTML, the
<link> element is used to create a link between a document and an external resource. The link tag is most commonly used to refer to external style sheets. This element can exist numerous times, but it should only appear in the head section. The link element is empty and solely includes attributes. The link element's values indicate how the item being linked to is related to the containing content.
