CSS Primer

  • Adam Freeman


Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are closely associated with HTML and are the means by which you control the presentation of HTML elements. CSS has a special significance for jQuery for two reasons. The first is that you can use CSS selectors (which I describe in this chapter) to tell jQuery how to find elements in an HTML document. The second reason is that one of the most common tasks that jQuery is used for is to change the CSS styles that are applied to elements.
