HTML and CSS Reference
To understand the nesting
relationships, draw a picture
Drawing the nesting of elements in a web
page is kind of like drawing a family tree. At
the top you've got the great-grandparents,
and then all their children and grandchildren
below. Here's an example…
Si mple w eb p age
<html> has two nested
elements: <head> and
<body>. You can call them
both “children” of <html>.
< body> is nested w ithin th e <html >
e lement, so we say <body> is the
“c hild” of <html>.
<title> is nested within
the <h ead> element.
