Don’t understand the difference between chaining selectors and nesting elements


#1

I need help please. I don’t understand the difference between chaining selectors and nesting elements - in order words, how does h2.destination differ from description.h5 (aside from text size, of course)?


Chaining Selectors
#2

header elements have other roles then just being bigger in font-size

h2.destination will target all elements heading level 2 element with class destination, description.h5 would target all description elements (which do not exist) with class h5, which is not what i would use as class name, given its already the name of an element


#3

description.h5 is in one of the steps in the lesson. Could you please provide an example of when would use h1.destination and when you would use description.h1? I’m still confused about the difference.


#4

i might certainly hope not, can you provide the url to this lesson?

i can’t, given description.h1 is not possible, description is not an existing element


#5

Sorry, I made a mistake: it’s .description h5.

We learned h2.destination and then .description h5. I just don’t understand the difference. When do you use one, and when do you use the other?


#6

that is quite a difference

h2.destination will target all h2 elements with class destination

.description h5 will target all h5 elements nested within elements who have class description
