Use linked style sheets to control layout and presentation

Why is this important?

CSS benefits accessibility primarily by separating document structure from presentation. Style sheets were designed to allow precise control - outside of markup - of character spacing, text alignment, object position on the page, font characteristics, etc. By separating style from markup, authors can simplify and clean up the markup in their content, making it more accessible at the same time.

How can I resolve this issue?

Use a css stylesheet on your page
