ODS styles control the overall appearance of your output. Usually, the only thing you need to do with styles is specify them in an ODS destination statement, as in the following example:

ods html body='b.html' style=HTMLBlue;

However, you can also modify existing styles and even write your own styles. You can also specify style elements in custom templates that you write, or you can modify which style elements are used in templates supplied by SAS. This section provides an overview of styles and style elements, which are the components of a style. It also describes how to customize a style template and how to specify a default style for your output. Only the most commonly used styles, style elements, and style changes are discussed here. For complete details about styles, see the SAS Output Delivery System: User's Guide.
