Introduction: Cascading with CSS

Synopsis: When you set a property of a selector like 'p' to a certain value, that value applies to all p tags. If, however, you change that same property to a different value for a more specific instance of p, that change will override the 'general rule'.

  • If you say p { font-family: Garamond}, all 'p's will have the font Garamond.

  • BUT if you say li p {font-family: Verdana}, 'p's outside of 'li's will be in Garamond, and 'p's INSIDE 'li's will be in Verdana.

  • The more specific your selectors are, the higher importance CSS gives to the styling you apply!

Summary: Greater specificity makes CSS prioritize that particular styling.


p {
font-family: Garamond;
.font {
font-weight: Bold;
font-family: Garamond;
div p {

color: #7AC5CD;

ul li p {
color: #000000;
text-decoration: underline;


the idea of this exercise is not to use classes, introduction and summary paragraph are both a direct child of body.
