Sample text

Attribute A value that is associated with an element and consists of an attribute name and value, such as align="right". Many attributes in markup are presentational and therefore ideally replaced with style sheets. Content Any content that is associated with an element. Document tree The tree of elements that evolves from the source document(s). An example of a simple document tree is in Chapter 1. Canvas The area of the browser where the document is displayed. Child A sub-element of a parent element.

Child Selectors Descendant (contextual) selectors allow you to style a child element separately from its parent. But what happens if you have deeply nested elements? For example, you can have numerous em elements in a division element, div, and paragraphs within that division can also have strong elements. If you wrote the following descendant selector: div strong all of the strong elements within the div—even those within paragraph elements (the grandchildren)—would be affected due to inheritance.

Browser exceptions are naturally the most frustrating inheritance exceptions. Writing your CSS based upon the proper structure of documents can help you avoid problems with inheritance because you will have a clear idea of which elements exist within the tree and what their relationships are. Specificity Yet another component of CSS that works to resolve conflicts within rules is specificity. Specificity explains the importance (also referred to as weight) of a given rule within a style sheet. Specificity is broken down by selector types.
