CSS3/JS Selectors: When Your HTML5 Has No Class

Presentation: external link
Average rating: ****.
(4.44, 16 ratings)

Pick an element, any element. Style it. Manipulate it. No IDs. No classes. No jQuery necessary. We’ll learn all the new features of selectors in CSS and JavaScript that enable you to select this DOM node, that DOM node, and even an imaginary DOM node based on attributes, relation to other elements, location in the DOM, or just an element’s mere existence. The possibilities are endless, if you know how to use the tools in your tool box. Today’s tool is CSS3 (and JavaScript) selectors.
