Cascading Order

Category : 10th Class

*    Cascading Order


While using multiple style sheets you need to arrange these sheets in a well define order. The following characteristics will determine the outcome of CSS:  


*  ! important

A style that is designated as important will win out over contradictory styles of otherwise equal weight.  


* Selector Rules

It is a counting game to calculate the specificity of a selector.

  • Counting the number of HTML tag names in the selector.
  • Counting the number of ID attributes in the selector.
  • Counting the number of CLASS attributes in the selector.  


*  Order of Specification

If two rules are the equal weight, the last specified rule wins.

P1, P2, P3


color: green;
