CSS has some syntax. The point of the syntax of CSS is described as follows.

Point of the syntax

This syntax has two parts, the selector and the declaration.

Selector: Specifies the target of styling.
Declaration: Specifies the property and value.

  • Declaration is contained between "{" ... "}".
  • Declaration end with a semicolon.
p{ color: red; }

Declaration part can have one or more declarations.

p{ color: red; font-size: 12px; }

When the declarative part has a lot of declarations, the Web creators usually describes it as follows:

  color: red;
  font-size: 12px;

Describing it like this is more comprehensible.

CSS comments

  • CSS comment starts with "/*", and end with "*/".
   color: red;
   /* This is a comment */
   font-size: 12px;

In the next chapter, you will learn the selectors.
