thead represents the heading and the tfoot, the footer of the table. tbody represents the body except the head and the foot of the table.
In thead, I have taken “Apple”, “Microsoft” and “Google”.
In tfoot and tbody some random numbers for the purpose of illustration.

Just don’t try worry about these numbers, instead concentrate on the structure of the table.

  <link type="text/css" href="style.css" rel="stylesheet">

This line is very important, since it connects the HTML file and the CSS file.
This type of StyleSheet is called as external stylesheet.

Styling information of the HTML document. (style.css)
