    Using css in Blackboard

    I am working with an instructional design tool called Blackboard (BB) that lets teachers with no knowledge of HTML put their courses online. The UI for this program is terrible, and I'm looking for ways to make BB courses more easy to use and effective.

    I wanted to try linking to an external stylesheet in order to have some control over page layout, but, like this forum, content is input through a graphical interface (with code view toggle) that restricts access to anything outside the <body> tags.

    My question is this: If you insert a link to an external stylesheet within the <body> tags, will styles still render correctly?

    Also, I'd be happy to hear from anyone who's had success making Blackboard more user-friendly.

    Thanks!

    It would be invalid HTML, so why would you want to do so anyway? If you have to use Blackboard (and there's no reason to use it unless it's been forced upon you in which case you have my sympathy), then just inline the styles and be done with it.
