Exercise 9 - A Greater Selection


#1

In this exercise, you are suppose to call the selectable function. I did that and when I open the page it made the boxes in the result tab change to orange when selected. I went to check the css file and there is some kind of statement here...

ol .ui-selected {
	background: #F39814; color: white;
}

It quite clear that this is the reason why the boxes turn to orange but its not clear about the link between this and the selectable function. There is no information about this at all. What is ui-selected? Is it a JQuery code or a CSS? Any info would be appreciated?
