Matches any element type.

* { sRules }


String that specifies one or more cascading style sheet property/value pairs.

The universal selector matches every element in the document tree. If the universal selector is not the only component of a simple selector, the "*" may be omitted. For example:

  • *.myclass and .myclass are equivalent.

  • *#myid and #myid are equivalent.

  • *:hover and :hover are equivalent.

The following style rule draws a thin orange border around every element on the page:

    * {border: 1px solid orange;}
