CSS Syntax : Chapter 2

A CSS declaration always ends with a semicolon, and declaration groups are surrounded by curly braces:

p {color:red;text-align:center;}

To make the CSS code more readable, you can put one declaration on each line, like this:


p {
color: red;
text-align: center;

CSS Comments

Comments are used to explain your code, and may help you when you edit the source code at a later date. Comments are ignored by browsers.

A CSS comment starts with /* and ends with */. Comments can also span multiple lines:


p {
color: red;
/* This is a single-line comment */
text-align: center;
}/* This is
a multi-line
comment */

CSS Syntax

A CSS rule set consists of a selector and a declaration block:

The selector points to the HTML element you want to style.

The declaration block contains one or more declarations separated by semicolons.

Each declaration includes a property name and a value, separated by a colon.
