- [Instructor] There are many different ways…to select HTML elements.…Let's start with a review of the basic selectors…covered in the first course of this series.…Type selectors are the most basic and generic selector.…They are used to match the HTML elements…by using the tag name.…Class and ID selectors can be used to apply styles…to any element, independent of the tag name.…They are both added to the opening HTML tag as an attribute.…You define the value.…The same class can be used one or more time per page,…but IDs can only be used once per page.…
You can also use multiple classes in one HTML element.…Separate the class name with a space in the HTML.…In the CSS, to target both selectors,…combine them without a space.…Multiple IDs cannot be used, but an ID and a class…can be contained in the same element.…For naming conventions, use descriptive names…that describe the purpose of the style.…Use underscores or dashes to separate words.…If you're using abbreviations,…use something that is fairly common.…
Any standard attribute in HTML can also be used…
