maybe because CSS is developed long after HTML take off or maybe it is mean to be developed separately from the main HTML (web page) structure or maybe i am not Genious.

there are more styling languages than just css, but css is the most used and therefore standard. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_stylesheet_languages?wprov=sfla1

Wow! It's a question which has an answer but I suppose he died long ago who knew the answer. Nobody knows the answer except the creator of CSS.

Maybe the creators thought that HTML and CSS are equal and one should not contain other (<css> inside <html>). Just a guess, which is most probably wrong.

once upon a time HTML was created. So that text could be send. Someone wanted to <style> it and so CSS came up. In order to make it dynamic someone decided to <script> it with JavaScript. So now we have it! ūüėĀ

The Answer here... CSS stands for 'Cascading Style Sheet'... so if we separately create CSS(external) so it would a 'Sheet' attached to HTML Document...so we call it CSS with .css while when we 'apply' CSS on HTML using Style attribute or <style> tag you can't say it Sheet...So it can't be <CSS>... A Sheet always means as a separate thing.
