Sample text

Element Selector An element selector selects all instances of an element, specified by its tag name. This selector is more specific than the universal selector, but it’s still not very specific since it targets every occurrence of an element, no matter how many of them there may be. For example, the rule: em { color: red; } gives every em element the same red foreground color, even if there are thousands of them in a document. Element selectors are also known as type selectors. Class Selector A class selector targets any element that bears the given class name in its class attribute.

Older browsers lack a built-in doctype switch and so are forever locked in their outdated quirks modes. To correctly invoke compliance mode in modern web browsers, a complete doctype must be included as the very first line of text in a document; only white space is allowed to appear before it. Any markup, text, or even comments appearing before the doctype declaration will throw most modern browsers into quirks mode, with often-unpredictable results. Designing websites with CSS is considerably easier and the results are more consistent when the document is rendered in compliance mode.

Some tags indicate empty elements, which are elements that do not, and in fact cannot, hold any contents. Empty elements don’t require a closing tag but are instead “self-closed” in XHTML with a trailing slash at the end of a single tag that represents the entire element. For example, the following tag represents a line break, an empty element that forces the text that follows it to wrap to a new line when a browser renders the document (you’ll learn more about this element in Chapter 4):
The space before the trailing slash isn’t strictly required, but it will help older browsers interpret the tag correctly—without that space, some rare, old browsers fail to notice the tag’s closing bracket.
