HTML and CSS Reference
In-Depth Information
his applies the margin settings to only the top-level divisions in the body of
the page, not to any divisions nested within other elements. Only direct child
elements are selected, no grandchildren or other distant relatives. Example 3.1
shows two identical unordered lists with IDs list1 and list2 . Each has lists
nested within its list items.
