In this intermediate-level course you will explore and compare CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) selectors. As HTML is used to add content to a website, CSS is used to make that content visually appealing to website visitors. This course focuses on helping you identify how and when to use element, class, and ID selectors to enhance the appearance of text on a website’s pages. CSS is a very powerful tool and gaining more control over the visual aspects of textual data on a website is a great first step in harnessing that power. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
