Answer

The CSS rule-set consists of the 2 building blocks:

  • selector
  • declaration
Example of CSS syntax
selector {
	property-name: property-value;
	property-name2: property-value2;
}
  • The selector is responsible for defining which elements the CSS styles will be applied onto.
  • The declaration defines list of semicolon-delimited CSS properties.
  • Each CSS property consists of property name and value where property name is delimited from value by colon.
