  style
Style is often aligned with pathos, since its figures of speech are often employed to persuade through emotional appeals (see Figures of pathos).
Style is very much part of the appeal through logos, especially considering the fact that schemes of repetition serve to produce coherence and clarity, obvious attributes of the appeal to reason.
Style is essential to rhetoric in that its guiding assumption is that the form or linguistic means in which something is communicated is as much part of the message as is the content (as MacLuhan has said, "the medium is the message").

 Creating Web Documents: Style Sheets
Style sheets help people who write HTML separate the content of their Web pages from a specification of how those Web pages should look.
Therefore, in using style sheets, like many other kinds of new HTML elements that have come before, you will need to be sensitive to users who do not have the most current Web browser software.
In fact, by using style sheets, you can avoid much of the kind of syntax gymnastics that HTML writers have had to put into their pages to make things "look right." The result is that your HTML pages can be leaner and cleaner.

The STYLE element is used in the document HEAD section to indicate style information for the entire document.
If a LINKed stylesheet also exists for the current document, the CSS style rules indicated in the STYLE element should have precedence over styles in the LINKed stylesheet, given that each of the selectors for the style rules are equal.
It allows the browser to build a menu of alternative style sheets (such as if one or more external Style Sheets are specified through use of the LINK element.) It may also be used to identify the Style Sheet in order to allow the user to have control over turning it on or off.

Style sheets make it easy to specify the amount of white space between text lines, the amount lines are indented, the colors used for the text and the backgrounds, the font size and style, and a host of other details.

 Gregorian Association
It might therefore be suggested that the largely clerical rejection of the chant in recent years resulted from a premature judgement, stemming from a reductionist analysis of the possible range of meanings in the liturgy and its traditional music.
However, the performance of Anglican Chant continued to be influenced by the same rhythmic performance style until the twentieth century, when equalist rhythm was adopted in the wake of the influence of the monks of Solesmes.
In a similar style were arrangements of chant and of Merbecke's music for the Eucharist made in the 1880's by Sir John Stainer, one-time Director of Music of the Association.

 Effective Use of Cascading Style Sheets (Alertbox July 1997)
These differences make it important that Web style sheets are designed by a specialist who understands the many ways in which the result may look different than what is on his or her own screen.
Single-page styles should be embedded rather than linked: the page should continue to link in the global style sheet and then override it with local, embedded styles as necessary.
Retaining a decent presentation without the style sheet is mandatory to support users with older browsers, blind users, and users who need to disable the style feature in their browser (either because of bugs or because your style conflicts too much with their preferences).
