Images under <link href="#" rel="stylesheet">?


#1

I am new to web design, what I have studied so far in the course is HTML and CSS. I have seen in some exercises is the image under <link...> and not under a separate <img>. see an example:

<title>The Rise of Soccer in The US</title>
<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Playfair+Display|Roboto:100" rel="stylesheet">
<link href="style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

    <h1>How the Rise of Soccer in the US Is Changing the Face of Youth Sports</h1>
    <h2>The focus on soccer in youth sports programs is exploding nation-wide</h2>
    <p>When the first World Cup arrived in the US in the 90's everyone officially declared that soccer was it. Well it's taken it's time but we can definitely see the influence of soccer, especially women's soccer, across the US. This year, 3 million kids played in youth soccer leagues with 2/3 of those leagues for girls. In fact, in the 12-17 age range the MLS has surpassed the MLB and NFL in popularity.</p>
    <p>Part of this meteoric rise can be attributed to the impressively soaring ad dollars being pumped into the Women's World Cup games in 2014. The women's games generated $40 million for Fox, that's definitely not chump change. And those advertisers, like ATT, Coca Cola, Verizon, Nike, Visa, and other heavy hitters, are working to make sure they see those numbers grow year after year by investing in youth soccer facilities and promoting programs across the country. </p>
    <p>Now that big business is involved you can be assured you'll see a continued rise in popularity in soccer across the country for years to come. </p>

LOL, it converted the HTML.


#7

and now the question? The images are where they should be

the first image is added using a regular <img> tag, the second image is added in css using background-image property


#8

I don't see where exactly in css is the property adding the image?


#9

i told you what the property is, so you should be able to find it in your css code?


#10

your're right, cool!
