Practicing Vikki's Week Three Jewels.

1. <span> is an inline element we can use for small sections, i.e., a letter, word, a few words, part of a line or the entire line.

2. We can also use <span> to draw attention by increasing font size, changing colors, etc.

3. Class selectors, Vikki's choice, and probably everyone else after they learn the ropes of CSS, as they can be used repeatedly with minimum keystrokes.

4. ID selectors work much like class selectors, but, from what I can understand, can only be used once. If this is the case, I vote for Vikki's biased opinion on Id selectors.

Underlined ID selector.

Overlined ID selector.

Line through ID selector.

5. Combining selector types looks interesting, but it certainly takes some 'looken' to see the logic.

This is an <h3> type selector, while

This is an <h3 class="odd"> combined selector.

6. Contexual selectors extends the possible number of rules exponentially.

I'm trying to grasp the concept of contextual selectors.

7. Now line-height is just what I've been look for to handle manuscripts without hassle.

The 12th day we arrived in Boston; after rounding Cape Cod, a furious gale sprang up from the northeast, weather very thick. Laid the vessel-to all night.

8. I started off with little confidance in the 3d effect, but now I'm convinced!

8. List-style properties seem to expand endlessly using CSS.
Note: A very interesting chapter, congrats Vikki!. Zerly, a million thanks. You'd wonder how two innocent tiny screw-ups can get W3C validator so uptight!
