Sample text

The universal selector is often used to style every element on a page. For instance, you can remove the default browser padding and margin on every element using the following rule: 27 CHAPTER 2 * { padding: 0; margin: 0; } When combined with other selectors, the universal selector can be used to style all the descendants of a particular element or skip a level of descendants. You will see how this can be put to practical effect a little later in this chapter. 1 and CSS 3 have a number of other useful selectors.

21 CHAPTER 1 Other differences in rendering are subtler and specific to certain browsers. However, they include things like not requiring the # symbol for hex color values, assuming lengths without units in CSS are pixels, and increasing the font size by one step when using keywords. Mozilla and Safari have a third mode called “almost standards mode,” which is the same as standards mode, except for some subtle differences in the way tables are handled. You can tell what mode a page is rendering in by using the Web Developer Extension in Firefox.

For instance, say you had this set of rules. What color do you think the two headlines will be?

The answer, surprisingly, is that both headlines are gray. The first selector has the highest specificity because it’s made up of two ID selectors. Some of the later selectors may look more complicated, but as they only contain one ID, they will always lose out against the more specific selectors. If you ever come across a CSS rule that just doesn’t seem to be working, you could be suffering from a specificity clash.
