Today I reviewed some of the CSS fundamentals and colors.
CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. It is used with HTML to build web pages. More information is found at:
HTML and CSS are usually kept in separate files in order to keep code maintainable and readable, as well as keep structure separate from styling.
The <style>element allows you to write CSS code within an HTML file.
A CSS stylesheet can be linked to an HTML file using the <link>element, which requires three attributes:
- href- set equal to the path of the CSS file.
- type- set equal to text/css.
- rel- set equal to stylesheet.
- A CSS selector targets an HTML element.
- CSS declarations style HTML elements.
- Declarations must contain the following two things:
- property – the property to style.
- value – the value for the property
- CSS declarations must end in a semicolon (;)
- A CSS rule consists of a CSS selector and the declarations inside of the selector.
