    Learning Cascading Style Sheets Makes For Better Web Pages. - You would define...

    (Page 4 of 6 )

    You would define the necessary items for the class that you want to control (paragraph or header tags). ".rcol p" would be used to control how a paragraph tag was rendered. To associate the class to the object, simple add "class=rcol" to the paragraph tag, or the table tag if it's in a table, or div tag if it's in a div, etc. This is also where the term cascading in CSS earns it's keep: the default definitions cascade down into a class as long as the class does not contain something that overrides the default. This means that in our example text rendered in a paragraph tag looks different for the rcol class. However, because that's the only thing we've defined for rcol, everything else would look the same as the rest of the page.

    You can also define size and positioning for objects in CSS. This is one place where we hit the real world of CSS pretty hard. Not all browsers support the size and position commands the same way. This leads to hacks that define a position and then use a command that is known, for example, to cause Internet Explorer to bail out of the CSS, after that line you use a position command that Netscape for example understands. CSS uses the last definition of an object so this technique can be used to "trick" or "hack"
