Chapter 2. How CSS Works > Rule Declarations

Rule Declarations

So far I've focused on how you use CSS rule selectors to target tags, but you haven't yet looked much at the other half of a CSS rule, the declaration. I've used numerous different declarations to illustrate the selector examples but have only explained them minimally. Now it's time to look at declarations in detail.

The diagram showing the structure of a CSS rule earlier in this chapter (Figure 2.2) shows that a declaration is made of two parts: a property and a value. The property states what aspect of the element are affected (its color, its height, and so on) and the value states what that property is set to (green, 12px, and so on).
