Disadvantages of Inline CSS

  • We cannot use quotations within inline CSS. If you use quotations the browser will interpret this as an end of your style value.
  • These styles cannot be reused anywhere else and it's only single html element based.
  • These types of styles are tough to be updated because they are not stored at a single place.
  • We can't use the pseudo-codes and pseudo-classes with inline CSS.
  • Inline CSS does not give browser cache advantages.
