CSS - Syntax

CSS Syntax

A CSS rule has two main parts: a selector, and one or more declarations:

Selector : <h1>
Declaration : { color:red;font-size:10px}

The selector is normally the HTML element you want to style.

Each declaration consists of a property and a value.

The property is the style attribute you want to change. Each property has a value.

CSS Example

A CSS declaration always ends with a semicolon, and declaration groups are surrounded by curly brackets:

p {color:red;text-align:center;}

To make the CSS more readable, you can put one declaration on each line, like this:

CSS Comments

Comments are used to explain your code, and may help you when you edit the source code at a later date. Comments are ignored by browsers.

A CSS comment begins with "/*", and ends with "*/", like this:

/*This is a comment*/
/*This is another comment*/
