CSS Selector

Shout it kick it on DotNetKicks.com
In this post is about CSS selector and how it woks. Following is explanation of most of the selector that is used in CSS.

In the following first is css example and than html code on which it will work, so to try by yourself create html page and put the css as well as related Html and see the result. In most of the select I provided demo link where you can visit and see the result.

In below post you might find some new CSS selector that are the part of new CSS3. All of the below examples and demo tried by me on latest Chrome version.

.Class -: Select all the element with given class name.
CSS
.MyIntro
{
  font:15px arial,sans-serif;
  color:red;
}
Use
<div class="MyIntro">
<p>My name is Pranay Rana.</p>
<p>I am working as Soft Engg.</p>
</div>

#id -: Select all the element with given id name.
CSS
 #MyIntro
{
  font:15px arial,sans-serif;
  color:red;
}
Use
<div id="MyIntro">
<p>My name is Pranay Rana.</p>
<p>I am working as Soft Engg.</p>
</div>
Point to Note : You can have more than one element having same classname in HTML page but you can have only one element with the ID.

HTMLElement - Select all the html element which name is given.
CSS
 p
{
  font:15px arial,sans-serif;

  46. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few
