The Syntax for a CSS Rule

  • We will take a look at the syntax for a CSS rule and learn about selectors, properties and values
  • Every CSS rule is virtually identical in syntax which makes it easy to remember
  • Each rule is comprised of selectors, properties and values
  • Open heading.html
    • Add the following text to the page: Tranquil Travel
    • With your cursor in the line of text, choose ctrl/cmd 1 to make it a heading 1 tag
    • Select code view
    • Move to the top of the web page directly under the title tag
    • Type the following code:
    • <style> h1 { font: Cambria, "Hoefler Text", "Liberation Serif", Time, "Time New Roman", serif; color: green; } </style>
    • You can see how the first line of text is affected but not the second line
    • That is because it does not use the H1 tag
  • The selector goes before the first curly bracket
  • Between the brackets you list the properties followed by a colon
  • After the colon you list the values following by a semi-colon
  • That is the syntax for every CSS rule
