Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Main section, part of Creating a Responsive Web Design.
- So now we're going to style our main section.…So back to our CSS file, after the header rules…Let's come in here, let's first create a rule…that will target all of the sections.…We're going to come in here and set a margin bottom…of 50 pixels.…And then we're also going to set a pseudo element…to clear all of the floats.…We're still going to be floating some individual elements…here to create columns for the print version…and we'll want to clear these floats as well.…Again, just like we did earlier in the course.…So after section two colons then type after,…Put in our brackets.…
We'll type content.…Two tick marks and a semi-colon.…So we're going to leave the content blank.…We'll set a display type of block.…And a clear property of both.…So now with those changes made to all sections,…now we'll target section main.…So we'll type section.main.…Put in our brackets.…We're going to set margin top to 20 pixels.…We're going to set margin bottom to 30 pixels.…
Next, we'll target the asides inside of section main.…So we'll copy that rule, paste it.…
