Standards information

Remarks

The CLASS attribute value must immediately follow the "period" (.) notation. More than one class name can be specified in one style rule; to match a subset of CLASS values, each value must be preceded by a period.

Examples

For example, the following style rule matches any P element whose CLASS attribute has been assigned a space-separated list of values that include the "pastoral" and "marine" class names. This rule matches when class="pastoral aqua marine" but does not match when class="pastoral blue".


<style>
    P.pastoral.marine { color: lightseagreen; }
</style>
