CSS Selectors

To style our HTML elements, we must somehow tell the browser what we want to style. In order to do this, CSS provides a way for us to select one or more elements on the page.

Here are some examples:
#apple {
    color: red

.boldtext {
    font-weight: bold
    font-family: Arial;
    font-size: 1em;

input {
    width: 150px;

On the next page we'll examine one of the most common types of selectors -- the ID selector.

What are the differences between the three types of selectors shown?  Are you going to explain these later?

Thanks for pointing this out, I should have indicated that these are explained in the subsequent tutorial pages (e.g. How to Style a Single Element with CSS) seen after following the Next link above.
