    Class selectors Redirect 1


    In an HTML document, CSS class selectors match an element based on the contents of the element's class attribute. The class attribute is defined as a space-separated list of items, and one of those items must match exactly the class name given in the selector.


    .classname { style properties }

    Note this is equivalent to the following attribute selector:

    [class~=classname] { style properties }


    span.classy {
      background-color: DodgerBlue;
    <span class="classy">Here's a span with some text.</span>
    <span>Here's another.</span>
