Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Targeting inline content, part of CSS: Selectors.
- The first-line and first-letter…pseudo-element selectors allow us to target…the first line or first letter…of any inline-block content.…Though there are some restrictions…on the properties that you can use…to style these elements,…they make the process of adding…special styling to text a lot easier.…So to illustrate that…we're gonna be working with the inline.htm file.…I wanna point out a couple of things…about these selectors.…Now first off,…although this seems obvious,…first-line and first-letter are going to target…inline text content.…So they're gonna target things like paragraphs,…or table cells that have…inline text content inside of them.…
The other thing is that the target element…has to have a display value of either block,…inline-block, table-cell,…or table-caption to return a match.…Otherwise it won't match.…And both of them are sort of limited…in terms of the actual styling that you can apply.…First-line, for example,…is limited to things like font properties,…related text properties like text transform,…
