Making CSS3 easy to learn
After years of writing articles, building CSS courses, and even writing book, I’ve refined my teaching techniques so that students totally new to CSS can learn easily.

– class selectors
– ID selectors
– tag selectors
I assume you know what selectors are, because you’ve either done my basic CSS tutorial (found on this site,) or you’ve done my beginners web design video course, found on Webmentor.org. So I won’t get into the details in this article. Instead, I just want to quickly talk about the advanced CSS selectors you have to choose from – for instance:
