Linking Stylesheet with Text

Hello, I'm trying to create a new ePub and I don't understand the linking the stylesheet to the text. I have pasted over the text I want to make my first chapter but I don't see the style sheet. How do I create one? Thanks in advance.

Well to try and keep this simple:

Open Sigil, at the left hand side you will see a bunch of folder icons. RIGHT click on Styles, select "Add New Item." This will create a BLANK stylesheet. DOUBLE LEFT click to open that up and paste the following from the code box below:

Code:
@namespace h "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";

/* defines page margins for all display pages: top right bottom left*/
@page { margin: 15px 0px 0px 0px; }

/* heading tag one, I use this for book titles */
h1 {
text-align: center;
font-size: 1.5em;
padding: 0;
margin: 5px 0 0 0;
}

/* heading tag two, I use this one for chapter titles */
h2 {
text-align: left;
page-break-before: always;
font-size: 1.2em;
padding: 0;
margin: 10px 0 0 0;
}

/* your paragraph tag, wrap your paragraphs with it */
p {
text-indent: 25px;
text-align: justify;
padding: 0;
margin: 6px 0 0 0;
}
Now go to the page labled Section0001.html, select CODE VIEW and paste in the following UNDER <title></title> and ABOVE </head>:
Code:
  <link href="../Styles/style0001.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
That about covers the basics of linking a style sheet. You MUST do that second part with every .html or .xhtml page you create.
