HTMLStyleElement: type property

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes.

The HTMLStyleElement.type property returns the type of the current style. The value mirrors the HTML <style> element's type attribute.

Authors should not use this property or rely on the value.


The permitted values are an empty string or a case-insensitive match for "text/css".
